Lego Architecture: Arc de Triomphe

Arc de Triomphe Lego modelI finally built this model yesterday after much procrastination.

As usual, I used the 50mm prime lens to get a shallow depth of field. The fake sunset light was done by turning off the overhead ceiling light and using the LED floor lamp. I also included a diffused Lume Cube.

Apologies for the bottle of Southern Comfort in the background, but I am running out of suitable display space for these models.

There was much that I did not know about the Arc de Triomphe. This is another aspect of the Lego Architecture that I really enjoy – the instruction booklets are filled with interesting facts about the history and construction of each real-world building.

The re-designed Solomon Guggenheim Museum is still in its box. But I’ll try to begin that build this week.

I have a really big Lego model on the way. More on that later…
