Day #243Title: Make Yourselves At Home
Location: High Gavinburn, Old Kilpatrick
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Extras: Tripod / CamRanger
Notes: Today was day 2 of the drive up to our cottage accommodation just outside Glasgow, which myself and four colleagues will call home from home for the next month while we are working on the Scottish Referendum programme. I was the first to arrive, so decided to make myselves at home. The clones loved it! Perfect for Treasure Hunt #64 – Homely.

Day #240Title: Kindertransport
Location: Liverpool Street Station
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-55mm EF f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

Notes: A quick shot as I was passing through Liverpool Street Station this evening on my way home. This is part of the Kindertransport statue on the station concourse, commemorating the rescue of thousands of Jewish children just before the outbreak of the Second World War. I thought it would make a good shot for the current 52 Weeks Theme, Statuary.
