Day #3976Title: Tiny Town
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I’ve just finished my latest Micropolis block, a shopping mall with a tiny ice cream parlour, deli and – of course – a LEGO shop, amongst other things.

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 #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.

Day #3927Title: Careful Packing Required
Location: At home
Camera: Apple iPhone 5s / Rear Lens, 29mm f/2.2 equivalent
Notes: Time to put them all in the box again, ready for transport to Newcastle for a big LEGO show next weekend. Hope it all fits in the car!

Day #3926Title: QR Square
Location: At home
Camera: Apple iPhone 5s / Rear Lens, 29mm f/2.2 equivalent
Notes: This next week I’m travelling up to Newcastle to display a full selection of my Micropolis builds at a new LEGO show in the Discovery Museum. Rather than handing out wasteful business cards with my website details on, I built this Micropolis block called QR Square, which is a real, scan-able QR code! It should take you to a page on my website showing you where to find all my LEGO content around the web. To the punters of Micropolis, it just looks like a rather modern park with different coloured paving slabs, a few ponds and some carefully placed hedges. Seen directly from above, it’s a different story! Perfect for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 9, Something That Begins With Q.

Day #3914Title: Under The Mountain
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: Here’s the tunnel mouth of a MOC I made from two sets of the LEGO Great Wall of China release. The huge hill and wall span across two Micropolis baseplates, and there needed to be a way for the cars to get through, so some boring into the mountain was required. The traffic flows freely now! Originally I made this shot for the Treasure Hunt theme  “Tunnel” but then realised I’d already got a shot for that one! Never mind.

Day #3913Title: Deconstructed By Road
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Having taken a few of my Micropolis models to a show last Saturday, I’ve been meaning to unpack them again and put them back on my shelves, but I was busy yesterday. Some of them have been a bit shaken around during transport, but they didn’t take too long to restore to their former glory – it’s all part of the fun! Yes, I could have swaddled them in bubble wrap or other packing materials, but that takes a whole lot longer to pack and unpack, takes up far more room, and doesn’t actually guarantee they will end up much less broken. But it’s the beauty of LEGO that it doesn’t matter too much, and they were soon back on the shelves looking good.

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!

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.

Notes: This is another little Micropolis model which I built today. I like the cheerful rainbow colours.
