...Something I was determined not to jump onto, hoping in fact to leave the country while the rest of the planet came here and made the city a human zoo. But a decent shot is any photographer's Achille's Heel, so I relented when my colleague Kevin asked me to join him in taking some photos around London on the opening night of The Olympic Games.
We got to Tower Bridge, by way of a short stop in Hays Galleria, and waited eagerly and patiently for a promised fireworks extravaganza. When it finally happened nearly two hours later, it was barely a minute long, and a paltry show!
We then traversed over to the Houses Of Parliament, which was being used as a screen receiving projections of images from past Olympic Games. That was actually a lot of fun.
Anyway, I'm still mostly indifferent to the entire event, but at least I managed a few shots to post here. Enjoy.
