    Had to take the day off of work to get some stuff done and happened to be in the area where the torch relay was going by. Here are some of the images.

    It must have been inspirational to see! I would sooooo love to have been a torchbearer (I applied, but so did several million other people!) I really like that first shot, with the proudly smiling torchbearer, and the small hands reaching out to hold the torch.

    Great moment to be there, very crisp and clean shots, very "journalist" if that's a word ? Makes me want to be there :D

    SHot #3 has a lot of wonderful stuff going on! The two torches, the man with the point and shoot camera, the snow on the awning, the reflection of the snow on the conifer tree, the bell on the brickwork, the expressions. Nice moments captured there.
