Day #1773 Title: Do Not Remove
Location: BBC MCX, Television Centre
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: A vital wire in the comms link between BBC studio N9 in London and the Washington Bureau, where the presenters were located, for the US Election programme. Overnight we watched as the American voters also said that “Do Not Remove” applied to their incumbent President.

Day #1769 Title: Round The Block
Location: Television Centre, London
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: This afternoon I went for a quick roam of the corridors at TVC during a break in rehearsals. The fifth floor is where BBC Sport used to live before they went to Salford. I loved the way the floor around the inside of the iconic donut was made up to look like an athletics track. Great fun!

Day #1660

Day #1660 Title: Face Down July (Hi-Viz Edition)
Location: New Broadcasting House
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: Some areas of the building where I currently work are still under CDM (building site) regulations, which means we have to wear rather fetching steel toe-capped boots, hi-viz jackets and hard hats. Grovelling in the back of an equipment bay or down a hole in the floor is an every-day occurrence. I confess, this isn’t actually my hard hat – I borrowed it from a friend as it’s much more photogenic than my boring white one! Another shot for the Treasure Hunt, this time Theme #07 – Once A Month – July.

Day #1620 Title: Gloomy Forecast
Location: New Broadcasting House, London
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 / 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: Terrible weather today in London, and more to come. This is a neon-illuminated decoration in one area of the new newsroom at New Broadcasting House. I thought it summed up the weather quite well.

Day #1590 Title: Face Down May (Mobile Phone Edition)
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: This week we are derigging the extra facilities which were put in for the Election Programme, and tidying various basement store rooms in preparation for the move to a new building in W1 later in the year. In one dark cupboard we found an old field telephone which I took a fancy to. It’s always handy to have a mobile with you to call for help if you have an accident on the stairs… This month’s shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #05 – Once A Month – May, and of course the zany Face-Down Tuesday crowd.
