Day #3932Title: Drive The Train
Location: Newcastle Metro, Approaching Chillingham Road, Newcastle Upon Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I had a very enjoyable day displaying my LEGO models at Discovery Brick Show today. After the show closed I met up with Alistair (who had been busy elsewhere during the day) and we enjoyed a lovely social with the other folks – first bowling and then dinner. So it was quite late by the time we made our way back home on the Metro. But one advantage is nobody was sitting in the front seats next to the driver’s cab, so we got a good view – and it always makes me feel like I’m driving the train! Anyway, makes a perfect shot for 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 10, Long Exposure.

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 #3929

Day #3929Title: LEGO Wreath
Location: Bricks & Beers, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I managed to be in the right county to attend the October Bricks & Beers meetup in Newcastle tonight. We built a collaborative wreath for the Shildon Brick Show next month, which happens around Armistice day. Some folks built poppies while I helped put the green structural elements together. I think it came out really well!

Day #3881Title: Windswept Life
Location: Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I am making a flying visit to Newcastle for a couple of days on my way to/from Stirling for the weekend. A quick walkabout in the city centre near the Centre for Life this morning yielded this image – an off-beat take on 52 Weeks 2018 – Topic 7, A Lone Tree In The Landscape.
