Day #3896Title: Brick Badge
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: It’s tricky trying to photograph your own brick badge whilst wearing it! Eventually managed a decent shot. Now I’m ready for any more LEGO events coming up over the next few months!

Location: At home

Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Having returned from the Egham Royal Show where some of my LEGO was on display over the weekend, I had the inspiration to build another little Micropolis model. This one is called Pumpkin House.

Day #3891Title: Monthly MOC – August
Location: Egham, Surrey
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: A while ago I lead a Micropolis workshop at the London AFOLs meetup, where I explained the basics of building these LEGO modules. After my talk, the club put together a good selection for display at the Egham Royal Show (some of which you can see in the distance). I also brought along a few of my own creations to show, including the Air & Space Museum (middle), Big Blue (on the left) and Spring Heights on the right. So this will be my shot of the August MOC for Treasure Hunt Theme #08 – Monthly Project.

Day #3890Title: Steaming At Orchard Junction
Location: London Colney, Hertfordshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Geeks + Miniature Steam Trains + BBQ = Geek Steam BBQ. We’ve been having fun driving tiny trains for 9 years now, every August Bank Holiday Saturday, and this was one of the lovely little engines which was visiting this year. It is simmering in the sidings at Orchard Junction waiting for the next passengers to embark. And yes, I know it’s just letting off steam at the moment, but it does involve a bit of smoke when chuffing around, so I’m going to say it counts for Treasure Hunt Theme #63 – Smokey.

Day #3889Title: Big Bricks
Location: St. Albans, Hertfordshire
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Today I was setting up for a LEGO show in Egham over the weekend, but I can only attend that on Sunday, as tomorrow is the annual Geek Steam BBQ in St. Albans. Rather than to-ing and fro-ing around the M25 for 3 days, I had blagged a bed for a couple of nights with friends in St. Albans. It had been a busy day, and I was getting ready for bed when I realised I hadn’t made a picture. Ah! These big DUPLO bricks are on hand for when my hosts’ grandkids come to stay, but they saved my bacon too.

Day #3888Title: Down The Pub
Location: The Woolpack, Chelmsford
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I had arranged to go out for the evening with a couple of friends locally, as we hand’t seen each other for a while. Our favourite watering hole, The Woolpack, happened to be having a beer festival, and I wasn’t driving for a change. Result!
