Some aerial photography

Some of you might know that flying is part of my job. I am not the one that's doing the actual flying, but I need to test certain equipment in what we called "Flight tests". Usually these are not very interesting since we fly over typical forests/trees which all look the same from above. But this recent one, we changed our flight path a little and flew over a lake to the north of our location instead. Before this, I always thought it was just some boring lake and nothing special. But after seeing it from above, it's actually quite beautiful! Since it is probably my last flight since it's my last month here, I brought my DSLR with me and snapped some of these shots...enjoy!

On our way...

Usually the view is just like this.

A small island in the middle of the lake.

Did some sharp turns to get these pretty rad shots.

This will be one of the many things I will miss when I go back to school...

Brickfete 2014

Hey guys! It's been a while since I've posted but I am still kicking! Toy-wise, I've been slowing down A LOT...pretty much to a halt since I am going back to school full-time in fall so I need to save them pennies! There's still a few left over pre-orders to fill and such, but nothing big. Anyways, I went to a local Lego show today called Brickfete. Heard about it on the radio and it sounded fun so why not? And what did I think of it afterwards? IT WAS AMAZING! I felt like a kid in the candy store...except I couldn't buy any of it! LOL

I took WAAAAY too many pictures so I won't post them all here and just link them here instead:
