Love this graffiti photo from Glasgow in Scotland.
It’s awesome (in the literal sense of the word) graffiti anyway, but the perfect timing of a lady wearing a purple top really completes the composition of the shot.
Welcome to London 2012 on Flickr.
Not everyone is a fan of the London Olympics at this stage.
Many people seem to believe that the British are being typically understated in their enthusiasm or cynical about the Games. No - we’re pretty miffed about it actually.
Personally, I think they’ll be great once they get going and will benefit London hugely afterwards, but at the moment I have only experienced negatives. Exceptionally slim chances of getting tickets, transport disruption, no access to the Olympics Park until 2014, Dow Chemicals sponsorship, IOC control of social media and photography, and the spammy marketing in various channels of the media.
I want it to be a huge success when it actually happens, especially if it can include more of the country than just London. Hopefully the current torch relay is just the start and the real momentum can build rather than just the media hype.
