Classics in LEGO

Lunch Atop a Skyscraper

A lego reconstruction of the famous 1932 photograph "Lunch atop a skyscraper" taken by Charles Ebbets.

Mike Stimpson has clearly put a great deal of thought into how some of the most famous photographs were shot.  So much that he’s recreated them using LEGOs!  He even included links to how he setup each shot which is a fun way to learn a little about lighting as well.  Just plain fun!

D-Day Landings 2

A Lego recreation of Robert Capa's 1944 photograph taken during the D-Day landings on Omaha beach during World War II.

I’ve been pretty amused by the buzz about the new “Content Aware Crop” feature in PhotoShop. It never occurred to me that it wouldn’t have that feature because I’ve used Open Source tools to do the same thing for years.

The bench really distracted from the composition of this image so I simply used the Resynthesizer plug-in for GIMP to remove it.

  • Free select tool to “lasso” the bench.
  • Filters -> Enhance -> Smart Remove Selection.
  • Done
