Entry number 122 for the 2022 365 Black & White Challenge is a photo from the “Get Rhythm” Johnny Cash and June Carter show I was hired to shoot.
I’m now a third of the way through the 365 B&W Challenge. Huzzah!
Is it just me or is Lego Masters the nicest show on television?
Although a competitive show with a not insignificant prize money, the competitors genuinely like each other and grow closer the further their journey goes. I’ve seen many examples where when in true trouble, other teams will help a competitor so that they finish the task in the time allowed.
There’s good natured ribbing throughout but the overarching feeling is of genuine respect and love. They are all very aware of the incredible opportunity they are all a part of and are having such an incredible time.
Let me interrupt the flow to bring you a message from our sponsor, Me! Did you love the photo? Each photograph in the 2022 365 Black & White Challenge is made available as a single signed limited edition print. If you are interested, you can purchase the print at the Shop for only $36.50 (including free postage to anywhere in the world). If it’s not there then someone beat you to it! I thank you for your support of my photography and this website.
The hosts, Hamish Blake and Brickman are having as much fun as any of the contestants. Hamish is the textbook kid in a candy store and does nothing to hide how much he loves his job. Brickman, one of 13 Lego Certified Builders worldwide (and the only one in the Southern Hemisphere) is the serious one, explaining the challenges and handing out advice at critical parts of the build.
The best thing about Brickman is how much he cares about anything to do with Lego. An incredible master builder with hundreds of absolutely stunning builds to his credit, he almost always tears up when he has to eliminate a team. He wears his emotions on his sleeve and it’s a breath of fresh air compared to what we are used to on television, especially in the “game show” sphere.
If you’re not watching it and you have any fond memories of building with Lego, you simply must watch.
It’s a must watch every year at the ASD household.
If you’ve made it this far, thank you for your time and your attention! I will see tomorrow you for the next post.
