London 2012

Tower Bridge


Late July and August were busy months as I was out and about on a number of days to capture the atmosphere as London prepared for the arrival of the Olympics and the relay of the Olympic Torch. One advantage of living in Teddington is that we got to attend 3-Olympic events for free - the Men and Womens' cycling road races and the Mens' Cycling time trials.

It was a truly fantastic time with more people than we have ever seen in the town, along with amazingly clear roads as the town was closed to traffic for 3-days. I have been compiling Flickr Albums of these days - here are links to some of those albums:

Preparations in London and lots of flags!
