Rules of play
The Rules are below, the main one being. Please, only one photo at a time until we have a confirmed correct answer. It makes it much easier to keep track of.
  1. Take an obscure photo of a BA location you are currently in (or have visited recently)
  2. Post on this thread and add a clue (if you feel itís required)
    The goal is then to be the first person to correctly guess the location.
  3. The OP confirms who has the first correct guess
  4. The OP updates the win to the Wiki
    If the winner has not won before, their name is entered and the post date/time they won is added below. If the winner has won before, the date and time of the post they won is added below their name.
    USER NAME
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    Location guessed, Photo post #, time guessed in.
    etc. etc
  5. To try and keep it further within the remit of the forum, I think double points should be awarded in the event that the OP can get a BA logo into the photo without giving the game away.
  6. Multiple guesses are allowed, but must be turn about with other members and at least 10 mins apart
  7. Please try and keep it to one live photo at a time.

I am going to take a punt as the backdrop looks mildly familiar although I'm not so certain on the foreground context. So here goes...

EDI?
