Visual storytelling

As someone who loved the "make your own toy" creativity of Legos when my kids were young, I really appreciated the visual cleverness of this NY Times blog post by artist Christoph Niemann in which Legos are used to illustrate places, things, and situations. I think I would have liked these tiny works even more if I had been more familiar with Manhattan, but even for someone who hasn't been to NYC in years, they were still very clever.

Coincidentally, the user pic (thumbnail) for today's post is a photo of Legos shown in ultraviolet.
