1st Mono MayHem ’13

Reception ReflectionTitle: Reception Reflection
Location: BBC Television Centre
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 8-15mm Fisheye EF f/4 L USM
Notes: I spotted the potential of this location a couple of days ago and thought I would save it for the  first picture for Mono MayHem 2013. I loved the reflections of the ceiling lights in the granite surface of the desk – the postbox hole (for returning security keycards) was an added bonus. The whole scene was given a curvy twist with my 10mm fisheye lens. When I first joined the BBC in 1990, this was Main Reception but once the Stage 6 addition to Television Centre was finished, reception moved to the front of the building below the curved glass newsroom, and this location was renamed Stage Door. However, I will always think of it as Main Reception!
