Sixty Sundays: #LEGO #GameOfThrones on #Instagram

Sixty Sundays. I have been posting these Game of Thrones photos for past 60 Sundays on Instagram. Before that first Sunday, I sort of posted a LEGO photo here and there, if I had nothing else to post. I had just found the perfect head for my sigfig, but I didn't even know there was an active community of all kinds of people who take meaningful photos of timeless plastic toys.

Fifty-nine Sundays later, I have been interacting with people in the LEGO photography community on a daily basis. The pieces of plastic that I have chosen to represent my dog and myself have traveled the world, and they will continue to do so, if I can find more bubble mailers. Over the course of 60 Sundays, I find myself posting daily on not one, not two, but three LEGO-centric Instagram accounts -- one for often silly personal topics, another for a webcomic / community contests, and a third to try to give back to the community that's been so kind to the first two, by encouraging newer accounts to keep shooting, posting, and improving.

In any case, here are the final five Game of Thrones spoiler photos, until next summer, at the earliest.

In "Blood of my Blood," Samwell claimed House Tarly's family sword Heartsbane for his own, before running off to Oldtown with Gilly and baby Sam.

In "The Broken Man," we met the real hero of Season Six, Lyanna Mormont, for the first time.

In "No One," Arya Stark finally found herself, and she's either a killer ... or Batman.

"Battle of the Bastards" was the best episode ever, so far.

In "The Winds of Winter," Jon Snow was declared the King in the North! (Among other revelations and cliffhangers.)

And that's all 60 episodes of Game of Thrones.

I want to give a heartfelt thank you to all those who have joined me -- or should I say, who have graciously invited me to join them -- on this journey of smiles and high fives and LEGO. Cheers!

I don't know what to write about next month. I'll figure it out, hopefully. Cheers!
