Q is for quit by Nilanja Q is for quit by Nilanja
"»Von mir willst du den Weg erfahren?« »Ja«, sagte ich, »da ich ihn selbst nicht finden kann.« »Gibs auf, gibs auf«, sagte er und wandte sich mit einem großen Schwunge ab, so wie Leute, die mit ihrem Lachen allein sein wollen."

Kafka

the idea was that I started building up a lego castle and gave up...but the photo didn't turn out like I wanted. you can not really see the unfinished castle, the lego bricks in my hand and so on :( still I uploaded it because my boyfriend and me spend a lot of time on building the castle...I forgot what playing with lego means. sitting on the floor for ages, looking for THAT brick in a heap of other bricks, trying to understand the instructions. ooh I got old...my whole body hurted because of sitting on the floor xD

I love making lego houses >_<, maybe it because I have made them since I was 4 I think, started with big bricks.

I love the concept, love how the bricks in your isn't up in the air or anything, but laying loose like you have given up. and the face, a bit sad trying to hide it in the leg. it is like the disappoint you can't finish what you wanted to do, that something was to big a bite to take (don't know how to explain that in more English way). for me it gives a great picture of giving up, quitting. think you made the photo really great and fits well with the concept ^-^

yeah, if you did look in the how to thing, then start different places the then stop make a little a other place, and may put a brick in one of the once there stuck to the ground, so it hangs out in to the air. or something like that.

(I live in the country were, LEGO comes from. so I have in LEGOLAND. it is like a disneyworld, just no as big and stuff. but almost everything there is made of lego. and they have made mini models of the different countries. and cities.

yeah, you can make it like ruined, by taking bricks away. I only know because my castles did sometimes because I was missing bricks so I tried to build them anyway.

and I can build okay fast.

not just for kids >_<, there is a lot of roller-coasters, and crazy things, there isn't really for kids. but there is a lot for kids too. but there is a lot for people there just like lego.

It might not have turned out the way you envisioned it, but I still think the concept behind it is very clear and you did a nice job :) :pat:

Hey this is still a great image! You can also interpret it as a
"fallen Castle" or "broken dreams" kinda thing. =]

LEGO > all :D
Ich liebe Lego und werde es immer lieber, das war ein großer Teil meiner Kindheit.
Ich dachte als ich den Titel gelesen und zum ersten Mal das Foto sah, du meinst mit der
Kindheit abschließen, welches für mich einfach der logische emotionale Hintergrund zu
diesem Bild ist.

haha ja lego war schon super! :la:

du kannst es sehen wie du möchtest. ich wollte einfach nur aufgeben darstellen. die kindheit kann man ja auch aufgeben.
