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 kept racking my brain to remember where I'd seen it. Only stayed in that hotel once though so took me a moment.

Since we had another pending one, we should probably wait for that to be guessed as well

I see what you mean but in this instance Prospero's guess is 100% correct and a google search confirms it.

He knows his buildings

Far from it at my bolding, I appreciate your photos and that of others including Woodbinerich who post here

I really enjoy trying to guess/searching and probably spend far too much time looking if I haven't been at a photos location.

Not sure of the latest one though. Tough one...……. but I like it!

It may be a bit obscure . We will see .
If it helps, I was walking up the stairs when I took the photo yesterday.

Yeah, can't really decide what is up or down, seem to be a surface with actual wear from use, yet have curvature that does not seem to indicate a floor.

Have a few ready, though my last couple of airports are getting too tricky to get obscure pictures from..

(it was just ignore me in that one post)

Guess confirmation really isn't needed.
