I am competing against Tyler Halliwell
"My dear Watson
I write these few lines through the curtesy of Mr. Moriarty, who awaits my convenience for the final discussion of those questions which lie between us. he has been giving me a sketch of the methods by which he avoided the English police and kept himself informed of our movements.. They certainly confirm the high opinion which I had formed of his abilities. I am pleased to think that I shall be able to free society from any further effects of his presence, though I fear that it is at a cost which will give pain to my friends and especially, my dear Watson to you."
"I have already explained to you, however, that my career had in any case reached its crises, and that no possible conclusion to it could be more congenial to me than this. Indeed, if I may make a full confession to you, I was quite convinced that the letter from Meiringen was a hoax, and I allowed you to depart on that errand under the persuasion that some development of this sort would follow. Tell Inspector Patterson that the papers which he needs to convict the gang are in pigeonhole M., done up in a blue envelope and inscribed "Moriarty." I made every disposition of my property before leaving England and handed it to my brother Mycroft. Pray give my greetings to Mrs. Watson, and believe me to be, my dear fellow,
Very Sincerly yours,
From "The Final Problem" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
For this round, I decided to build the death of Sherlock Holmes at Reichenbach Falls. It was the most memorable scene from my brief experience with the stories and waterfalls are always impressive to do in Lego. I love the layered look of my technique and I hope you do too. I know Tyler will rise to the challenge and I can't wait to see what he'll come up with.
I was going to make the falls bigger, but I actually ran out of pieces. As it was, I had to break up all of my creations that had a substantial amount of light grey 2x2 rounds. It's a hard world we live in.
Soli Deo Gloria
