Day #1556 Title: Auntie Beeb
Location: BBC Television Centre, London
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: My first career as a BBC Engineer saw me working at Television Centre for about 12 years. Then I spent a long time away during my second career, mainly working from home. But in 2010, 2011 and now 2012 I’ve been back to Auntie Beeb as a freelance engineer to help out on their Election programmes. So for the next month, this is “where I work”. It makes a much more interesting shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #39 – Where I Work than my back bedroom would have!

Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM

Day #1554 Title: Mosaic Mural
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: In 2009, the Department of Culture, Media and Sport granted parts of Television Centre Grade II Listed status. One of the key features they cited was this double-height mosaic mural by John Piper which adorns one wall of what used to be Main Reception. When the BBC moves out in 2013/14, this and other iconic areas will be preserved while the rest of the building is redeveloped.
