Welcome to Foolish Lego!
Hi! I am Dwaas (Dutch for fool) and then keeper of Foolish Lego.
The website is dedicated to fantasy and the use of Lego to bring these fantasies to live. Being a so-called “AFOL” (Adult Fan Of Lego) helps.
During the day (and most of the evenings, and some nights) I work as a medical specialist , but once I can find some time, the (other) fun begins.
Like many kids, I loved playing with LEGO when I was young(er), mostly together with my brothers. As I got older, the obsession died down a bit. Actually a lot…. I went into the so-called “dark-ages”. Lego always remained a guilty pleasure though.
At the end of 2012 my interest in LEGO rose again (It doesn’t hurt that my daughter had reached the age where she was getting into building).
Also, I was looking for a way to improve on my photography skills, and decided to put the two together to start the Foolish LEGO Project. In 2013 and 2014, for 730 days, I created, photographed and uploaded a a daily LEGO photo. Wherever I traveled, I brought my LEGO minifigures and bricks with me to capture the Lego shot each and every day. From the beaches of Miami, to the mountains of Nepal, to the shores of Turkey and Greece, the city of New York (but mostly at home) — wherever I went, my LEGO friends were right there with me.
Besides the Lego photography an other project started on August 13th 2013 (my daughters birthday 🙂 ). Foolish Lego the comic! So be sure to check that out too.
What’s next for Foolish Lego? Well, I still love taking LEGO photos and creating the Foolish Lego comic, so I won’t stop anytime soon. And who knows what the future will bring. If you have any suggestions, let me know!
Thank you for visiting Foolish Lego and I hope you enjoy your stay here.
