MELO R1: The Road goes ever on and on
MELO Round 1 entry: The Road goes ever on and on
About this creation
My entry for the Middle Earth LEGO Olympics round 1.

The Road goes ever on and on
Out from the door where it began,
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
Let others follow it who can!
Let them a journey new begin,
But I at last with weary feet
Will turn towards the lighted inn,
My evening-rest and sleep to meet.





Some fourth wall commentary: In the discussion for the MELO rules it was stated that round 1 should be anything from the Hobbit or the Lord of the Rings, but no First Age stuff. Mainly just being a pedantic geek, I pointed out that the First Age is referenced all throughout LotR, and I was going to do a vig based on Bilbo's 'Earendil was a Mariner' to make my point. That got me thinking of illustrating poems, though, and this seemed like a better idea. You could think of this as the Green Dragon, if you want, though the dragon on the flag isn't green. Okay, just some random inn - must be in Bree, though, since there is a second story. Anyway, this was originally going to be more ambitious and include some more buildings, but due to time those got cut out. My main focus was always going to be on the lone hobbit approaching the inn with the open door with light spilling out, so I was happy with this. Sorry about the photography. Due to taking pics at the last minute (the deadline is tonight), I was pretty sloppy with the backdrop. I think the lighting works best in pic 2, but the fig is placed a little better in pic 1. I'll go back and re-photograph later, but that won't be for the MELO.
Thanks for the contest, btw. I hardly build anything for myself anymore - mostly it's with the kids - so it was good to kick me into gear.

I would like to wish you luck as well. To tell the truth, I haven't the slightest idea what I'm going to do. I guess I better get working on it. --John

Excellent build! That inn is very well built and is just beautiful with the lighting how you have it; it looks very welcoming. The land surrounding is perfect, as well, with a stone path and scattered forest breaking as the Hobbit vagabond nears the inn. Great job and good luck!
