The Olympic Torch Relay {Photography}

Sunday, 22 July 2012



So today, my hubby, son and I were up at the crack of dawn to watch the Olympic Torch relay that goes by not too far from where we live....


...it was an amazing experience, such a great atmosphere and a once in a lifetime experience! Well, almost, as we're just off into town to watch the relay continue! I've got lots more photos to upload later on today, so will add them later on.

And here's a video of the torch bearer carrying the flame across the lake :)

 


Edit:...and here we have [some of] my photos from today. The rest, as always, can be found on my Flickr.

In the afternoon, we ventured to the town centre of Romford to see the relay continue along South Street.
