The little LEGO adventurers!

By Sj.Cliff
The little LEGO adventurers!

Looking through a strange couples travel photos may not be an ideal way to spend an evening. That is unless they’re Craig McCartney and Lindsey Haggerty’s photos, because they’re a little bit different…

Instead of kissy faces at the beach and adorable couples shit, they use LEGO to create their holiday snaps.

The story behind the idea is pretty cute too:

Craig said: 'I was thinking of things to get my girlfriend for her 30th birthday and I came across a little LEGO camera.
'This gave me some inspiration - we like to travel as much as we can and when we visit a new city or go somewhere on holiday.

'Lindsey always has the camera for taking pictures and I carry the map and a bag with our things.

'So I made two Lego figures to represent us - Lego Lindsey with the camera and Lego me with the map and rucksack - and that was the first gift I gave her when we were in Paris for her 30th.

'You'd be surprised how long it takes to get some of the pictures just right, even the slightest breeze can knock them over, and we always need something at just the right height to sit them on.'

The pairs Facebook page has developed thousands of followers. Together, Craig, Lindsey and their LEGO counterparts have been on over 15 adventures and shared their photographs via the social media site; even encouraging other people to submit photos and tag their friends in the originals.
