Olympic Torch Relay

The Olympic torch relay came right by the building I work at today, and I went out to catch the event. «street view» The streets were lined with people, but I still managed to get right up close and was about five meters from the torch as it passed by. I am quite pleased to have been able to participate in the Olympics even in this small yet once-in-a-lifetime way.

The Olympic Torch

The history of the torch relay is interesting and is worth a bit of reading on the Wikipedia page.

Did you use an SLR or your iPhone?

Unfortunately, I forgot my DSLR at home and had to settle for pictures with my iPhone. For a photo that I'll post here and probably not use again, I'm pretty happy.
