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.

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.

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 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.

The Middle Canal in Holyoke, Mass., shrouded by the type of fog I never get lucky enough to photograph. A mixture of derelict and active buildings is scattered along the waterways in this city.

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!

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!

 

Jeremy "The Crimson Cloak"

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!

Second visit to the active building site of the new railroad tunnel in Oslo. Smiling and greeting to the workers while we worked our way deep underground. Fun and exciting as always

A pair seen and actively building their nest. By now, i hope, their chick should had fledged. xlolx

A few weeks ago the Cedar Waxwings were very active, building nests and snacking on ripe berries. This one was taking a brief break from the hectic activity. Wildwood Park, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

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!!

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.

I found several swallows actively building a nest in a single bluebird house. I know that swallows will sometimes take up residence in a bluebird house but I was surprised as I watched multiple swallows flying in and out of the box with twigs and grasses, there may have been four birds in all. I read that these Swallows sometimes nest in colonies, but I didn't think in the same box !!

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.

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.

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.

Explored

...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!

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.

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.

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 came close, after they got comfortable after my three hours of presence. They were quiet active building their nest.

A lovely green heron stops by an island early in the morning light to check out the area for nesting materials. They are actively building a nest nearby.

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