Gingerbread Works of Art

The Gingerbread House Competition at Purdue

Each year when we visit the tree at Purdue around Christmas we try and view the great works of art that the dining halls put together for the gingerbread house competition. Each one of these houses has a great amount of detail that must have meant hours and hours of work. They do this for the people who come to see the houses as well as the bragging rights that come along with having the best house. This year there were many great houses to view as usual. With only my 17-40mm lens with me I couldn’t get the details that I would have liked to get. I did find a couple of scenes that I thought were very nice though. Above you can see a worker putting the finishing touches on her work. The jellybeans add a little extra to a walkway. Below you can see the interior of St Basil’s Cathedral. Each year I try and find a couple of details that interest me to highlight here. The inside of the church is one that has great meaning this time of year. When you look at the details like flags above or the stained glass below you cannot help but applaud the artists that created them.
