Day #3997Title: Merry Christmas From The London AFOLs
Location: Euston, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This evening was the Christmas Party of my LEGO User Group, the London AFOLs. There was an excellent raffle, lovely food, pass the parcel and Secret Santa to enjoy, as well as plenty of LEGO-related banter. Every year, Richard our LEGO Ambassador Rep sends a Christmas Card to the Community Engagement Team at LEGO’s HQ in Billund from us all, and I was drafted in as Official Photographer this time around.

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 #3891

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 #3870Title: Summertime Shadows
Location: Walthamstow, E17
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I went to a lovely summer BBQ today at the home of the chairman of the London AFOLs. Richard kindly opens his house and garden to 50-odd LEGO fans every August for the summer event. I spotted these shadows while empty glasses were resting on a table. Perfect for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic #4, Summer.

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 #3674Title: The Great Hall
Location: Alexandra Palace, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I was back in London today minding the shop on the London AFOLs table at the London Model Engineering Exhibition. It’s the first time I have exhibited any LEGO so I was quite excited to see what it was all about. We had a display of modules for the completely pointless-but-fun Great Ball Contraption. The punters loved it, young and old, and were mesmerised watching the balls getting shuffled about.
