If you have read the first installment of my new Lego photography personal project, The Adventures of Alex and Thor the Policeman, you will have a good idea of where the project came from and what it is about.  You will also have been introduced to some of the main characters in the series…though there are still more to come.

 

But, I wanted to dedicate Part 2 to some specific incidents that have happened and that I have recreated in photo form…. so without further ado…

 

How Uncle Bob Lost His Hand:

Uncle Bob repeatedly tried to ride his “bull” Bessy till one day Bessy had enough.  Despite Bessy telling Uncle Bob repeatedly that she was in fact NOT a bull and taking his hand off, Uncle Bob still refers to her as his beloved bull Bessy.

 

The Day Alex Got Rocket Shoes:

The town scientist (whom you will meet later) is always cooking up something for Alex to try out.  In Alex’s quest to be more like Thor, he is a willing participant in the scientists experiments.  When it came to the rocket shoes, Thor the Policeman was surprisingly on board.  He thought they were a great idea and was eager to help Alex try them out…safely of course.

 

 

The Day Alex Turned Into a Snake:

One of the downsides to the scientists experiments is that no one knows what will happen.  Such was the case the day that the scientist gave Alex an untested potion to try out.  The portion promptly started turning Alex into a snake… much to the surprise and horror of Miss Lady.

 

 

The Day Miss Lady’s Dog Got Stuck in a Tree:

Miss Lady loves her and Alex’s dog…dog.  She enjoys taking him to the beach when she wants a relaxing stroll.  However, dog being Alex’s dog as well, he has ambitions of being a superhero as well.  On this day he promptly climbed a tree and was quite pleased with himself…until he realised that he couldn’t get back down.  Miss Lady did what any person would do and called out Thor the Policeman.  Unfortunately, while Thor the Policeman is a great policeman, he isn’t the brightest bulb in the box and he brought a banana to try and coax dog down out of the tree.

 

 

 

So there you have Part 2 of The Adventures of Alex and Thor the Policeman.  There is much, much more to come.  This being something I can photograph in my home when I have some spare time means it’s something that I can do for a very long time!  😀

 

Hope you enjoyed it.  Which character of scene is your favourite?
