About Me and My Photos

I'm a writer who enjoys building things with LEGO bricks, taking pictures of them, and sharing them here on Flickr. I also enjoy taking pictures of my dogs and places I've visited. I don't consider myself a particularly serious photographer, though I appreciate a good photo when I see one, and try my best to take great pictures myself.

I run a LEGO website called The Brothers Brick. That means some of the photos in my photostream are official LEGO set photos that the LEGO Group has given me permission to share.

Other Random Thoughts

My LEGO designs generally aren't for sale.

Please don't invite me to groups for which a well-established alternative already exists on Flickr.

I don't trade with strangers, because sharing that kind of contact information with strangers isn't safe. If you ask, I'll probably block you.

Feel free to recreate any LEGO designs you see in my photostream (with or without credit; I don't care), but do not steal my pictures.

Don't make the kittens cry

    "Andrew is truly the Man behind the Curtain. The Wizard of our Oz. The Willie Wonka of our Chocolate Factory.

    All that AND someone once asked for my autograph simply because I knew him."

    "Andrew's one of the first customizers I remember seeing online after my DAs, and is one of the nicest guys I've (not in real life) met. ;) His love for purist minifigs is refreshing, and how can you not like his TBB blog?"

    "Andrew knows his way around the Brick (especially the venerable Minifig) quite well indeed. He's quite prolific, too. I suggest you set aside a significant amount of time for browsing his stuff."

    "Andrew, the Dunechaser, is such a nice character. For someone with a seemingly pretty busy schedule of affairs he always takes the time to post a comment that contributes to a conversation with authority and clarity - which is a good thing - especially with news about our "addictive little hobby".

    I really enjoy his stream, and his photographs are of top quality that keeps you focused on the subject with room to daydream.

    If you're a fan Lego, Lego minifigs and Dogs then I say :
    "Add this guy to your contacts!" (If you haven't already of course!)

    He's definitely the older brother to The Brick and a good Flickrite.

    " An amazing creator, he is an artist of Legos, especially minifigures. Most (or all) of his minifigures are made in a purist fashion. He has so many photos, all worth seeing."

    "Andrew is a brilliant yet misguided soul; my opposite perhaps. Instead of chasing eternal dreams of SNOT and real grey he follows the path of the minifigure. His redemption comes via knowledge of the Bellevue LEGO Store area..."
