Day #3834Title: A Visit To Bones Circus
Location: Manchester Central
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: After spending much of yesterday on busy roads, I abandoned my car and took the train to Manchester today, to visit Bricktastic 2018, a big LEGO show at Manchester Central. There were loads of inspiring models to look at, and plenty of friends (new and old) to chat with. All in all, a grand day out. This was a fantastic MOC showing a spooky haunted fun fair and circus with many moving parts including this carousel and a motorcycle Wall of Death! I didn’t catch the builders’ names but it was a family who had put it all together. It makes a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #32 – Fun Fair.

Day #3833Title: Leaf On A Dusty Car
Location: Menston, West Yorkshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Much of today was spent on the road, making a long, very hot and immensely tedious journey to West Yorkshire to visit friends for the weekend. After many delays and diversions, I had a bit of respite just before arriving at my final destination and went to find a handful of geocaches on the moors overlooking Otley. When I eventually got to Menston, I parked my car, unpacked and then noticed this little red leaf had landed on the bonnet. I loved the quiet composition of the shapes, colours and shadows. My only regret is that the car was so dusty, which I didn’t notice until much later – I would have spent the rest of eternity spotting it out to my satisfaction, so just decided to go with it as found!

Day #3832Title: Arboreal Landscape
Location: Chelmsford, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I took a little walk around the estate this evening to look for pictures, the breeze was cool and the sun wasn’t too fierce any more. I came across this wonderfully textured tree stump and made this image – I figured it was hard to tell the scale and imagined it could look like a much bigger landscape seen from above. Anyway, it’s perfect for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 45, Texture.

Day #3831Title: Blue Hour Lingers Long
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I had a load of jobs on the computer I had to do today. Before I knew it, the time had flown by and it was well past dusk, but at this time of year, the Blue Hour seems to linger on quite late.

Day #3829Title: Monthly MOC – June
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I recently acquired a load of mermaid fishtails, so thought I better make use of them as architectural features in a Micropolis build. Thus, Mermaid House was born. A good example for Treasure Hunt Theme #6 – June Monthly Project.

Day #3827Title: No. 263 Leaving Horsted Keynes
Location: Horsted Keynes, West Sussex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Over this weekend, the London AFOLs were taking part in the 7th Annual Model Railway exhibition held at Horsted Keynes station on the Bluebell Railway. There were several LEGO train layouts on display, plus some of our other creations. I took along a big collection of my Micropolis models. A great time was had by all and there was the bonus of seeing several steam trains depart each hour from the platform next to where we were exhibiting. Here is South Eastern & Chatham Railway’s No. 263 H Class 0-4-4T leaving Horsted Keynes on an Up service to East Grinstead.

Day #3826Title: Playground Hanging Basket
Location: Worthing, West Sussex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I’m staying with great 365-friends Ken and Carolyn for a couple of days. Today Ken and I enjoyed a photographic potter along the prom at Worthing, despite the heat. I spotted this swing in a playground by the beach and thought it looked like an oversized (un-planted) hanging basket. And it makes a good candidate for Treasure Hunt Theme #17 – Basket.

Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I had to nip into Bluewater for a brief visit today, on my way to visit friends on the south coast. This wonderful shadow caught my eye and I knew it had to be pic of the day.
