That's My World Tuesday #19: Film at Eleven


"TV 11 Studios Downtown"
Raleigh, NC - December 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Be a virtual tour guide on That's My World Tuesday

Despite the fact that its transmission facilities are well outside of town, the local ABC affiliate, WTVD has its Raleigh headquarters right in the middle of the downtown backbone. None of the other major network affiliates have studios in the downtown core, and this location is made more interesting yet by the fact that WTVD originally operated out of Durham, not Raleigh. I got this shot almost by accident while trying to get some downtown night shots. It just so happens that my favorite sushi restaurant in town is right next door.Violence Unsilenced

I would stay downtown too with a sushi restaurant next door. No chance of sushi where I live now!

Hi, great urban shot. You've got all the colours just right and the neon sign too. Well done!

I've just entered a real spree of tour guide shots I'm afraid. Wonder if anyone will have the strength to go through them all :)
