Day #1947Title: The Scenic Artists’ Workshop
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 8-15mm Fisheye EF f/4 L USM
Notes: We found the abandoned Scenic Artists’ Workshop today, not used for many a year. The light floods in from huge skylights above; the metal frames on each side wall would have had enormous canvases stretched over them for painting backdrops for the studios. Everywhere is spattered with flecks of paint from long ago. I loved how the drawer still contains a couple of old paint rollers too. I thought this would make a great shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #15 – Abandoned.

Day #1946Title: South Hall Curves
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 8-15mm Fisheye EF f/4 L USM
Notes: I took the fisheye lens to work today to see what Telly Centre looked like through it. Curvy building through a curvy lens! The iconic stairs of South Hall look quite different with it.

Day #1945Title: A Mirror On The Past
Location: Coalhouse Fort, Tilbury
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: The Chelmsford Flickr Photowalk group went to Coalhouse Fort this afternoon for a wander and a few pictures. The building was very interesting and there was also a WWII event on with folks wearing period dress – all very appropriate for Day #1945! This little corner was in one of the exhibition spaces, depicting the contents of an air raid shelter. I thought the sepia treatment for the reality and colour for the reflection was the way to go. I also rather liked a leaning tree I found at the fort.

Day #1944Title: Café Lunch
Location: Cherry On Top, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 8-15mm Fisheye EF f/4 L USM
Notes: I enjoyed a walk into town today for lunch at my favourite café, Cherry On Top. They do the most fabulous cakes there, but today I was good and only ordered the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on toast. I loved how the wide angle of my fisheye included just about everything on the table as well as the counter.

Day #1942Title: The Bluebells Are Late This Year
Location: Swan Wood, Stock
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GF1 /14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 IOS
Notes: I took my bike for a long ride this afternoon, looking for some bluebells. I made it as far as Swan Wood in Stock, to find most of them haven’t come out yet. I think I found about 3 plants flowering in the whole wood! A poor show compared to almost the same day a couple of years ago. I thought I would give the shot a little Orton to liven it up a bit.

Day #1941Title: Hoist Controls
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 40mm EF f/2.8 STM
Notes: A few of the Main Block studios were open today. We had a quick look around during the lunch hour. This is one of the control panels in TC1 for the lighting and scenery hoists in the ceiling.
