This is the most amazing Lego work I’ve seen in a long time.
Coolest thing I’ve seen in years. The actual replication process for DNA. Note how one strand has to be copied in reverse in short loops. Truly lovely animation that makes me more and more certain this world did not happen by accident.
Started off with Grace Cathedral Walked the Labyrinth – what a wonderful experience that is. I highly recommend it. Then it was off to the Golden Gate – all fogged in but we still managed to get some good shots – especially from the Marin Headlands. Then we went to the Sea Mammal Rescue Center
