Event: Join me at the Melbourne Brickstameet

Melbourne Brickstameet June 2016

Do you love photography, Instagram and LEGO and reside in Melbourne? This coming Saturday (18 June), Melbourne’s leading LEGO Instagrammers @cheepjokes, @Brett_Wilson, @TheShortNews & @LLWorld are hosting a Brickstameet in the CBD.

The LEGO-themed Instagram meetup will take you through a guided walking photography tour of my beloved city with a special twist – you’ll be experiencing and photographing Melbourne through the eyes of a LEGO minifigure!

You may think you know the streets and laneways of Melbourne, but the most awesome city in Australia (take that, Sydney) is an entirely different world when viewed from a minifig’s perspective.

You don’t need to be an Instagram user to participate as all LEGO & photography fans are welcome to come along. Read up on my experience at my first Brickstameet late last year where I got to interview and speak to the organisers. They’re all lovely people, very chill and great company to be around.

I’d also love to meet some of my readers in real life! As a special bonus, if you’re a Jay’s Brick Blog reader and attending the Brickstameet, come say hi and tell me the password “HAIL HYDRA”! First 3 people to do so gets a special gift! In case you don’t know what I look like, I’ll be wearing a tan trenchcoat over a red jumper! 

Hope to see you there! If you can’t make it, you can always follow the action on Instagram by checking out the #brickstameet hashtag!

See ya on Saturday!
