Day #2028Title: View From The Stage
Location: IndigO2, Greenwich
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 8-15mm Fisheye EF f/4 L USM
Notes: I spent the weekend at the IndigO2 at the Hacked.io event with Alistair and lots of other geek friends. We were encouraged to build something physical, write some code, or just learn new things in the company of our peers. This was the view from the stage when a lot of the geeks had gone for dinner this evening. But with nearly 500 participants attending over the weekend, most of the time these tables were full with busy people. I managed to set aside some time to build a new section of my website, dedicated to my personal photographic archive from BBC Television Centre, which I had been meaning to put together since May. But time flies! I finished the structure and uploaded about half of the content during the weekend, then showed off my work to the audience during the presentations on Sunday. I hope to add the remaining content very soon. Check it out here.

Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: The MCX Engineering team celebrate the last ever live transmission contribution from Television Centre for the Local Election programme today. Here you can see Rob, Peter, Paul, Marcus, Matt and me after TX had finished, with a little bit of fizz to say goodbye to the place.

Day #1949Title: Blinded By The Light
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 8-15mm Fisheye EF f/4 L USM
Notes: We were treated to another wonderfully sunny day today. My attention was caught by the stripy patterns thrown onto the wall of this office by the Venetian blinds. I also found great shots for my 50@50 and Mono MayHem projects too.

Day #1948Title: Helios Brings The Sun
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 8-15mm Fisheye EF f/4 L USM
Notes: At certain times of the afternoon, the Helios Courtyard is flooded with reflected light which bounces around the windows  inside the circular donut, refracting into wonderful dappled patterns on the slabs below. Helios (the Sun God), who sits atop the now dormant fountain, was working overtime today – and I couldn’t resist using the fisheye from a low angle to get the complete circle in the frame.

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.
