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.

Day #1940Title: Springtime At TVC
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: We were treated to another beautiful day today. I took this view of the lovely magnolia flowering in the Horseshoe Car Park at Television Centre on my way into the building. Good job I did – I spent most of the rest of the day working in a room with no windows. As it was a Tuesday, I also indulged in another silly FDT shot during my lunch break.

Day #1939Title: Sat Plat
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: I was back at TVC for work today, and went for a little walk at lunchtime. These are the sat dishes on top of what was the central comms area. I thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #72 – Rooftops and Chimneys. And I also found another picture for this year’s 50@50mm challenge in the stairwell of the restaurant block nearby.

Day #1927

Day #1927Title: Long Way Down
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: We were back at TVC today to pick up some equipment. This is the view of the central staircase of the South Hall. I’ve taken it from below last year, but thought I’d do one from the 7th floor this time. It makes a perfect fit for Treasure Hunt Theme #24 – View From Above.

Location: BBC Television Centre

Notes: During another quick wander around TVC today, I found the mural of Blue Peter Presenters next to the old site of the Blue Peter garden.

Day #1915Title: The Shelves Go On For Miles
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: This morning a took a quick wander around the ring road at TVC as I’d arrived a little early for my shift. I found this mural on a wall of one of the studios, which looked like it had been painted on by the scenery guys many years ago. It makes and excellent find for Treasure Hunt Theme #43 – Trompe-l’œil.

Day #1913Title: Perpendicular Path On The Wall
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon PowerShot G12
Notes: Another little architectural detail from TVC today. I’ve photographed this red stripe before (on Day #1225) but this shows a wider view from the central  courtyard of the donut. I thought it would make a good shot for Treasure Hunt Theme #33 – Perpendicular.
