The Oklahoma State Capitol is the house of government of the U.S. state of Oklahoma. It is the building that houses the Oklahoma Legislature and executive branch offices. It is located along Lincoln Boulevard in Oklahoma City and contains 452,508 square feet of floor area. The present structure includes a dome completed in 2002.

Oklahoma's first capital was Guthrie, Oklahoma, but it moved to Oklahoma City in 1910. Construction began on the Oklahoma State Capitol in 1914 and was completed in 1917. Originally, it housed the judicial branch of Oklahoma, but the state's high courts moved most of their operations to the Oklahoma Judicial Center in 2011, leaving only the Supreme Court Hearing Chamber in the capitol building.

The state capitol complex is the only state capitol grounds in the United States with active oil rigs101

went to check out my osprey nest to see what was going on. There is a nesting pair very actively building the nest up together. I was very happy to see it. More photos to follow

Another day and another visit to The Mistletoebird Nest.........

Fortunately for me the female bird was still actively building the nest whilst being guarded by the protective male.

This image is of the male - and I was given a little chorus as I was taking his picture - hope you like it!!

*** Really worth viewing Large on Black!!!!! ***

Thanks again for any comments, views or favorites - much appreciated!

Wishing you all another amazing day and week!

The concert hall in Reykjavik Iceland. A shot from my trip last October.

Quite controversial that it was built in the first place following the financial collapse of the country and apparently it was the only active building site in Iceland for several years. Now since it's completion it's become one of the City's landmarks and rightly so.

It's very eye-catching particularly at night and the minimalist architecture and design influenced by the Icelandic landscape are quite stunning and very Scandinavian.

With an economy now very dependent on tourism and a location used for public events I dread to think of the impact Coronovirus will have on it but no doubt it will see the crisis through. Everything is cancelled or postponed when you look on their website currently

I didn't get the chance to see an event here but would love to, it looks a great venue which reminds me of the Oslo Opera House which is equally stunning.

The full moon last night is sometimes called the Beaver Moon. Taken with a Canon 400mm telephoto lens using a Canon 7D dslr.

 

This is from www.timeanddate.com.

 

"According to some sources, the Full Moon for November is named after beavers because this is the time they become particularly active building their winter dams in preparation for the cold season. The beaver is mainly nocturnal, so they keep working under the light of the Full Moon."

It has been well over a year since I have explored flickr or revisited the LoH page. Needless to say, I am taken aback by the vibrant community that has continued to not only flourish, but grow during my absence. I have not left behind the League, I have not forgotten about the heroes that I have created or the group that I helped to find so many years ago. I have been busy actively building the past year. It has been one of the few things that has helped me to maintain my personal wellbeing as I won my battle with cancer and have worked through the untimely loss of my younger brother (who was the real-life inspiration for a few of my characters.) LEGO has continued to pull me through these hard times in my personal life the same way that it has for so many years in the past. I do intend to share my many creations with the flickr community when time permits, and I hope to become more active in the LoH once again.

 

I would like to thank all of you in the LoH for continuing my ideas forward and keeping this thing alive. Especially Andhe and Quickblade who have been there from the beginning with me crafting this crazy, collaborative world that has been a constant outlet for creativity. It means more to me than you guys can ever imagine.

 

Thank you gang!

This ancient little church sits in a tight cluster of active buildings on the outskirts of a Belgian city. You'd walk right by it and never think twice except for the smell of mildew coming out of the broken windows. Inside the place was a complete ruin, but the old world stone pillars and arches are still holding up for now. According to Google, the church dates back to the 1200's.

This is IT!

2014 is over and here s the list of brick creations made this year. It s been an active building time, it s been a good quality time at some Latlug 'n BalticLUG events, it s been a good year for collection expansion, etc.

This list is quite larger then my previous year's www.flickr.com/photos/47059345@N08/11584507215/ but still there are lots of things which haven't made it to the flickr, some of whom I have mentioned in my Eurobricks a-year-in-a-review topic www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=103926

 

Thanks for the great company all year long and I wish U all to have great brick time next year!!

Once Sir Joseph of Baeth learnt of Lenfald's separation, he feared that Djorn and Roger were in danger on their way to Garheim. This fear was realized when he received a note stating that the traveling duo had in fact been captured at the Lenfald-Loreos border and were being held for ransom at the old Garhim embassy; roughly ten miles north along the western coast. At this same time Joseph had received an order to go fishing in Lenfald in order to spy on the province. Figuring this was a perfect time to do so, he proceeded to hire a crew, pack his wares and fishing rods, and load up the Rogue Spur for the rescue of Roger and Djorn.....

 

Several weeks had passed since their departure from Dalmunatha. It took time for Joseph to sail far enough south in order to steer clear of the Magic Isles and plot a very careful course through the Sea of Despair to reach the safer coasts of the Western side of Roawia. Upon arrival to the cliffs that held the old Garhim embassy, its banners changed to the colors of Lenfald, Joseph told his crew to prepare to be boarded with weapons at the ready- if they had previously kicked the Garhims out of the embassy, who knows what they would do to them as Loreesis.

 

Surprisingly enough however, Sir Joseph and his crew were met with open arms as they docked to the old embassy with dock hands helping to immediately unload the sea-wary contents of their journey. Djorn and Roger were waiting along the lookout just above the docks holding on to two beautiful women each with giant grins on their faces. Standing next to them was a Lenfel knight with a light grey beard and swept back hair, wearing black lapels, noting him as a higher lord. He yelled out, "What ho Sir Joseph! How thee fare on this fine day?! Did thy winds give you quick course to mighty Lenfald?!"

 

Not sure if this was a ruse or sincere question Joseph knew to keep his tongue witty and his sword close for this encounter. He called back to the lord,

"Greetings noble Lenfel! The winds were sure in helping us get 'ere at the best pace it could!" He began to walk up the stairs to talk to the noble more clearly, "I dont think we have had the pleasure of acquaintance, I am Sir Joseph of Baeth, merchant and knight of Loreos. I was requested to come rescue my two colleagues here, who seem to have both made themselves rather comfortable. I feel I have brought more than enough gold and treasure to negotiate with for their immediate release. Exactly who do I have the pleasure of doing business with my lord?"

 

At this, the "captured" duo had begun laughing while the noble wrapped an arm around the confused Joseph and gave out a hearty laugh too. Gathering himself, the high lord finally spoke to Joseph, "Nay Sir Joseph! Yer friends aren't our prisoners! Why they have been great fun in our little castle! That note was written just to scare ye to get yer booty out here sooner! Twas a big misunderstanding that has happened since the separation of Lenfald from the nations of Roawia. Thou first think we kicked out the Garhims from their embassy, tis a false accusation- all the occupants left when Garheim was in most dire trouble with the Queen's soldiers. We took up residence because we didnt want them damn filthy Dragon soldiers to find and take root in this abandoned outpost.."

 

He turned and gestured to Roger and Djorn, "And the capturing of these two twas a complete accident, I had not yet returned from the council meeting so when word of our separation began to incorrectly spread- the local militias deemed it best to start building a wall and patrolling the Lorseesi-Lenfel border which is where your companions were taken. Our most sincere apologies for this mistake, we do not request any form of ransom and if you'd like you can set up a booth in the courtyard and sell thy wares! Stay awhile and let thy crew rest from your long journey! Im sure many 'ere would love to buy some gems and trinkets! AH I almost forgot the pleasantries, I am Lord Jon of House Dragmar.'

 

Surprised at this revelation and indeed tired from his journey here, Joseph was still suspicious of this Lord Jon and those Lenfels around him. He decided it would be best to accept the invitation and let the crew rest for a few days so he could dig a bit deeper into the mystery that Lenfald had become... He accepted the high lord's apology and invitation to set up shop and rest for a couple days. He finished by giving a sly grin and asking a single question, "So Lord Jon, I have heard that Lenfald's western shores are home to some of the best fishing the realm has ever seen! I just so happen to have my fishing rods with me, would you be up for a spot of fishing tomorrow?"

 

The old Lenfel replied, "Well of course we have the world's best fishing! I will take you up on that offer Sir Joseph! Tomorrow at mid morning we shall fish!"

 

.......

 

It was summertime in Roawia and like the other nations, Lenfald's denizens were enjoying this time of peace. This gave the old embassy a very festive feel. Merchants were selling their wares, people were milling about and talking, children were laughing; jesters juggled and told jokes, the men were having fun practicing their archery and sword skills. Roger had met a cute baker so while he managed Joseph's booth, he allowed her to sell bread to hungry customers. Djorn was off of his shift so he resumed courting the fair ladies he had previously been seen with.

 

The Garhims had set up a rather good system of agriculture here so many were tending and harvesting the varieties of produce and food that was growing around the castle though the guard presence was quite large for such a small outpost...Joseph noticed this.

 

Just a few meters down from the dock that held the Rogue Spur was a wooden outlook that jutted out over the cliffs, a perfect spot for fishing. It was here that Lord Jon and Sir Joseph had cast out their lines and began to wait for something to bite.

 

"Ahhh... a lovely day ain't it Lord Jon?" Asked Joseph. Slipping the objective of spying to Roger and Djorn late in the night, he knew that the information the three could collect would be valuable to his Areani allies. Joseph had also given the Lord some of his strongest Loreesi ale at breakfast to loosen him up before their little fishing excursion.

 

"Yes, tis a great day after all Sir Joseph! Nothing quite like men of stature relishing in the simple enjoyments of the commoners."

 

Looking away, Joseph rolled his eyes and nodded. "Aye milord, tis always a surreal experience. Tell thee, what dost thou think of Lenfald's separation from the Roawia?"

 

"Not much to be honest with ya lad. Everyone be a little tenser with being afraid of how the other nations will react, but we will all get along in the end Im sure. I will tell ya what Joseph, I dont give much trust to them Loreesi or Garhim diplomats and politicians. Tis the tried and true men of Roawia, those who work its land and seas that I trust the most. Men like you lad... I will tell you this though my new friend, something you'd like to hear but cannot tell anyone..."

 

He leaned in close to Joseph, so close Joseph could smell the Loreesi ale on the high lord's breath.

 

"I heard something remarkable has happened that gives reason for the sudden movements of Lenfald's ships-- the reason why there wasn't a vessel stationed here upon your arrival. There are trusted rumors that us Lenfel's have discovered something." He pointed out to the sea, "Something out there...-"

 

His sentence was cut off by Joseph being startled by the sudden jerking of his fishing line. "AHA! I believe I caught me a fish!" He yelled as he pulled up a medium sized fish.

 

Broke from his drunken trance, Lord Jon exclaimed, "Oi! That is a fine lookin fish me boy! Let us cook it up and get more of that fancy ale of yours!"

 

__________________________

 

First off, sorry for the rather long story! But it is needed for the continuation of Sir Joseph of Baeth's story which will probably be shorter in upcoming installments.

 

(Also, apologies for the kind of crappy pics- my actual camera isnt working and my light box didnt fit this size MOC so a lot of photoshop was used in the first pic so sorry about that.)

 

Secondly, Wow! This was a big entry to both the Loreos Local Challenge LCXXII and the second Journeyman task of the Merchants guild!

 

This was originally apart of a display last year for a local Lego event here in the Northern Colorado area but I never got around to posting it as life got in the way and I wasn't sure how to incorporate this into my character's story at the time. The base had been sitting around while the original castle was taken down to build something for my next Merchants Guild task.

 

It was really my first attempt at building an actual castle for once and since it was intended for a display- I wanted an open area for easy viewing while keeping the castle modular so that is why it doesnt really have a keep or anything. But after my quick redux I think it turned out quite well!

 

Yes, yes- I know the cliffs aren't that realistic since they dont curve but I was scrapped for angles/slopes when I built it a year ago so be easy on me. It was a challenge enough getting 3x2 32x32 baseplates to be that height already haha

 

If you've made it this far thanks so much for viewing! It's good to be actively building again and there is still quite a bit in store! :)

Another pothole image! This pair was actively building a nest. I thought I had great shots of them bringing the material to the nest and each photo had something directly over the head of the birds and it just did not look right. Took a while to figure out there was a string of barbed wire in front of the birds and of course I did not notice it through the viewfinder. Oh well; the joy of aging and our vision not as good as it used to be!

 

Please let me know if these images are too dark, they look ok on the laptop which apparently is not that great...thanks for letting me know!!!

 

Have a wonderful day. Thank you for the views, comments and/or faves.

What's better than one Cactus Wren on a cactus? TWO!

 

This pair was actively building their nest atop a cholla cactus.

This is a very visually active building, not just because of the reflection of the crane, but the moving orange elevators. A great look. This is a 3 exposure Photomatix image. Since there were people walking during the 3 exposures, there was considerable blur. The normal exposure image was tonemapped, and the most prominent people were cut-and-pasted onto the 3 exposure image.

London, England.

People always ask me why I like to photograph "abandoned" buildings and I use this term loosely, since there are very few buildings anywhere in the world that are truly abandoned. The reason I enjoy photographing these places is for two main reasons. The first is that photography has become so common in society that almost everything is photographed to death, for example search for any popular tourist attraction and I am sure you could find millions of photographs and to be honest, that bores me. These buildings are temporary and constantly changing, so it is unlikely that anyone else will be taking the same photo. The other reason is that the inside of buildings are private property and the owners are usually not interested in allowing people to take pictures of them. I find that nine times out of ten when I try to photograph an active building, I am asked to stop, whereas when I am photographing "abandoned" buildings, it is actually quite rare that I even see another person during that time.

Eutaw, Greene County, AL USA

 

This is the historical Greene County Courthouse erected in 1869 is vacant and in a state of ill repair. It's located in the center of courthouse square with three other buildings on corners of the square. One of the corner buildings is occupied by the Probate Judge (tax assessor) and has been renovated. The other two buildings are vacant. It appears that court was held in this building while supporting offices were located in the corner buildings. The Probate Office is the only remaining active building of the three corner buildings.

 

Greene County is a county of the U.S. state of Alabama. Its name is in honor of Revolutionary War General Nathanael Greene of Rhode Island. As of 2000 the population was 9,974. It encompasses 631 square miles. Greene County is located in the west-central portion of the state, between the Tombigbee and Black Warrior Rivers.

 

Greene County, AL is named for Revolutionary hero, General Nathaniel Greene of Rhode Island, who drove Brittish from the Southeast. The area explored by DeSoto, 1540. It was claimed as French Louisiana, 1699 and ceded to England, 1763 Greene county was created by the first state legislature on 1819 Dec. 13, from part of the land ceded to the Federal government by the Choctaw Cession of 1816 Oct. 24

 

Its county seat is Eutaw and is named for Greene's victory at Eutaw Springs, South Carolina. At the 2000 census the population was 1,878. Today, Eutaw's quiet streets are still graced by the town homes and mansions build from the 1820's to the turn of the century. Of fifty-three remaining antebellum structures, 27 have already been admitted to the National Register of Historic Places, and dozens more historic homes of the Victorian era survive in Eutaw.

EXPLORE: May 15, 2009

This Black-Crowned Night-Heron was having a little lunch in beautiful Colorado. There was a small colony of breeding birds and all were very actively building nests and preparing for their new additions. I found their colors and red eyes to be really spectacular.

 

Best viewed large.

It looks like there is a healthy population of red-shouldered hawks in my area. I am happy that their diet consists mostly of lizards and frogs. Although, they do eat songbirds when they get a chance.

 

I was out collecting giant swallowtail eggs from the wild lime when this beauty flew into my backyard neighbors tree. He was looking very intently at something over there but there is a privacy fence between the yards so I could not see what. I watched as the hawk silently but quickly floated to the ground. When he returned to the tree he was swallowing something but I could not tell what. If I was to guess I would say it was a lizard because it went down with only a few gulps.

 

Then the hawk turned his attention to my yard where the bluebirds were actively building their fourth nest. I could not help myself, I had to warn Anastasia (female eastern bluebird) that he was watching her. She then warned Christian (male eastern bluebird) and they left the yard for a while. The Carolina wrens took note when the bluebirds left, they spotted the hawk and warned everyone.

Therefore, I went back to collecting eggs and the hawk left for the moment.

 

I know the hawks have to eat too and I do love the hawks but they are not allowed to eat my bluebirds and I would prefer it if they would leave hawk bait (naive, juvenile dove) alone as well.

 

Have a spectacular day, happy snapping.

...It got so dirty today. I went with Tom and Norbert to a semi-active building to shoot. I brought a model for us to shoot and it was a fun time. We got so wrapped up in shooting her that I forgot to think about what to shoot for my 365 D:

On the way back from Kansas city MO, I parked at the Gas station to take a nap and in the middle of nowhere off the 70 Freeway I came across this crazy building. Seems to be active building next to corn fields that have been cropped..... interesting...

Rugby's Cowans Sheldon rail breakdown crane - possibly R.S. 1092/50 together with its match wagons prepares to lift yet another concrete beam into position at the Eastern end of Birmingham New Street.

 

Bearing in mind New Street at the time was an active building site - note the two lads to the right watching proceedings.

 

H & S nowadays would have a field day!

Well, it's that time of year again! Time to look back through the MOCs from 2018-- and there's only one this year. So what happened this year, and why weren't there any more builds?

 

Well, a couple major things happened this year:

1. I graduated from college/university way back in the summer. So that's neat!

2. I moved about 1000 miles away from home for work and left all the MOCing stuff behind.(hence the lack of builds) I'll be moving around for another 2 years.

 

So, life has been a bit crazy this year. I hope to get back into MOCing once I have a more permanent home, but my current living situation doesn't really allow it. Now some new builds may pop up here and there depending on how the year goes, but I don't really have any concrete plans in place at this point. I have some pretty interesting character ideas I would like to bring to life one day, though.

 

Let's address the elephant in the photobooth. Given the upcoming changes to Flickr, it is important to consider how this will affect things on my end. I am currently planning on staying on Flickr for now. I still have several hundred photos until I reach the free cap. However, I am considering switching over to a different platform (Instagram maybe) later down the line. If I start migrating my library over, I'll post about it here.

 

So! What is the plan for 2019? You may be seeing some content coming up soon, but I don't really want to promise anything in case life gets in the way of hobbies. But yeah, I have a couple ideas for how to keep posting even if I am not actively building. Stay tuned!

 

Thanks for another great year guys! It's been fun! It is always great to hear from anyone commenting on the pics, and I watching what you guys build is cool too! Until next time, friends!

Saguaro National Park

Desert Discovery Nature Trail

 

This was such a treat to watch a pair of Verdin actively building their nest. I stood across the street from the tree they were building in to not disturb them. They were working on the interior of the nest and it was tough to get them as they came out.

As usual my year summary is mostly in the shade of green ;) Only did about 3-4 proper size builds this year, with most being small experimental builds and tutorials. The Panda House was quite a fun project. I don't build replicas very often so it was a good learning experience. The Bleaching Coral build was a chance for me to move outside my regular color scheme, and go nuts with bright colours.

 

I actually thought I'd have much less to show this year, as I had a 4-5 month hiatus from LEGO over the summer, with other parts of my life taking up most of my time, but I'm happy to have ended the year being more actively building.

 

For 2020 I'm quite excited about what it will bring. I will probably have the same kind of building pattern, with a big build now and then, interspersed with some experimentation, to get all my ideas out of my system :)

 

Onwards to a great 2020!

This Great Blue Heron was starting its nest building by delivering large sticks to its mate for the foundation of their nest. There are quite a few of these birds now actively building nests at Wakodahatchee Wetlands.

Commonly known as the Pooley by explorers, although the "real" Pooley is across the street and still an active building....

Dreamland Beach is a beach located on the Bukit peninsula, on the island of Bali, Indonesia. The beach provides basic accommodation and cafes for surfers and day-trippers. One of the most beautiful beaches on the island, it is also renowned for its dangerous shorebreak.

 

It is the site of the failed Pecatu Graha development, planned by Tommy Suharto, the corrupt youngest son of the former president Suharto. As of 2008 this is an active building site with all the previous Warongs having been levelled for a hotel complex.

 

Dreamland. Formerly a very beautiful beach which has been ruined by the adjacent Pecatu Graha Indah & New Kuta development, Sadly it has turned into Nightmare-land. There are still excellent surfing conditions, especially for intermediate surfers on days when other breaks are too big to surf. The break goes right left, is not too shallow and has decent shape. If you do visit this beach, try to imagine how glorious it was before the bulldozers moved in. The entrance road to Pecatu Graha Indah is about 2 km southwest of Ungasan on Jl Uluwatu, and is impossible to miss adorned as it by huge statues and truly massive, intrusive billboards.
