Day #4008Title: Sweet Dreams
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I hate this time of year, the dark Winter days are so depressing. I really do wish I could hibernate sometimes! So sleeping seems like a good idea. And it also made for a great image for Treasure Hunt Theme #60 – Sleeping.

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 #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.

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 #3878Title: Last Train Home
Location: At home
Camera: Apple iPhone 5s / Rear Lens, 29mm f/2.2 equivalent
Notes: Doesn’t look like there are many punters waiting on the platform, but then it is time for the last train…

Day #3869Title: Next To The Duplo
Location: LEGO Store, Bluewater
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Some more of my Micropolis went on show at the LEGO store in Bluewater today. The colourful buildings look quite in keeping with the Duplo big bricks next door!

Day #3867Title: Monorail Prototype
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I want to make my own custom LEGO monorail trains for my city. This is a mock up of one of the carriages on the tracks. I like the colour scheme and think it will be fairly easy to build, I just need the parts in the right quantity.

Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: This is Dolphin Point, a new Micropolis module I built the other day. The dolphin sculpture is a large feature in the grounds of this luxury block of apartments! You can’t miss it…
