Day #3962Title: Monthly MOC – November
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Inspiration struck again, and I put together this luxury villa on top of an isolated hill for the outskirts of Micropolis. Called Summit Lodge, It is owned by a wealthy but reclusive businesswoman, whose husband is obsessed with cultivating yellow roses. Once again, the Art Deco period was an influence in the design. And it makes a perfect shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #11 – November Monthly Project.

Day #3940Title: The Funky Falcon
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I love the shape of the Star Wars Millennium Falcon models sold by LEGO, this one is one of the smallest. But they are so grey! So I built a funky version as well. Much better.

Day #3938Title: Drat!
Location: At home
Camera: Apple iPhone 5s / Rear Lens, 29mm f/2.2 equivalent
Notes: I’ve been coming down with a horrid cold for the past few days, so I’ve just been pottering around doing a few bits and pieces in my LEGO room today. Then I managed to knock over a whole pot full of tiny square tiles all over the floor. Argh!

Day #3934Title: Whodunnit?
Location: Euston, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: After a relatively trouble-free drive back from Newcastle, I arrived home this afternoon, unpacked the car and headed for the train to London for my monthly LEGO User Group meetup. We were collaboratively building rooms for a 3D Cluedo board. This is the team I was working with, head down, constructing the Dining Room. All good fun!

Day #3931Title: Discover Micropolis
Location: Discovery Brick Show, Newcastle Upon Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Here is my first solo display at a big LEGO event, the Discovery Brick Show in Newcastle, including all 29 blocks of my Micropolis city. It probably won’t happen again any time soon – the car was pretty full and the city is ever-evolving, so I will probably take a smaller selection to the next event I do. But I wanted to be able to show all of them off at least once. The display was very well received by visitors and other AFOLs who were also participating. And the lovely friendly folks at Brick Alley LUG made me feel very welcome.
