The 2017 Pirelli Calendar is continuing last year’s tradition of celebrating women beyond glitz and glamour with pared down images by German photographer Peter Lindbergh. The legendary photographer is the first to helm the project three times and titled the series of black and white shots Emotional.
Imagine walking outside your door and seeing this! Who wouldn’t rub their eyes in disbelief? A life-sized LEGO forest has sprung up in the Australian outback, in a small, isolated mining city called Broken Hill. Residents woke up to a surprise as they witnessed 15 13-foot tall pine trees and 15 flower sets “growing” on their barren red soil. (Back in April, a similar LEGO forest delighted tourists and visitors at Sydney’s Martin Place.)
Appearing from July 2 to July 12, the LEGO forest is at Living Desert, a unique reserve with spectacular views and numerous walking trails. Caroline Squire, Director of Marketing, LEGO Australia and New Zealand said, “The contrast of the larger-than-life green trees against the vast red Aussie land is an unforgettable sight!"
This is all part of LEGO Festival of Play, a nine-month schedule of hands-on events and elaborate creations all set to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the LEGO brick in Australia.
