    These are all really wonderful. My favorite is the one of the swimmer with the tattooed arm hanging on the side of the pool. The color and lines of that one are just amazing. The one of the swimmer through the bike spikes is also a stand out.

    Where do these ultimately end up? You're shooting for the Canadian team so I'm wondering if they will use them for their website/newspaper/magazine or for display in some future venue? I have no clue how that works so just curious what they do with them.

    There isn't a lot of media coverage for these games, so we are working as a news supply avenue, mostly through social media. The pictures I'm editing, captioning and sending the images within minutes of each event, the photo I posted is the photo stand at the pool, most are working on laptops and doing the same thing I am. The pool was 40c(104f) tonight, there is a lot of stress involved in working this way and to honest it's not very enjoyable most of the time.

    The other photos are of a random big guy that I saw sitting by himself, he isn't involved with the games, I just liked the light on him, the other is a backstroker.

    Great work. Love the body shop shot in the back street set. I was in that business for 30 years.

    Something a little different, Boccia played by athletes with a variety of disabilities. Watching them play is an inspiration.

    Only a couple of days left and not the challenges that I expected, the media lead us to believe it was a terrible place. I found it to be the opposite, the people are friendly and passionate about their country and their sports. While the venues weren't packed, the were always rocking, music and dancing, really an amazing atmosphere.

    Here's what I saw today.
