The Most Rubbish Olympic Torch Photos Ever!

10 July 2012

Spot the Olympic Torch! You have to look very carefully, but it's there somewhere.



In my defence, I had a 36lbs three and a half year old on my shoulders, an 18 month old child asleep in the buggy by my side and I was being jostled and pushed by a crowd of thousands! Not ideal photo taking conditions. I've got serious torch envy... there are blog posts almost every day with the most fantastic, clear photos of the Olympic torch *sobs*

Ok here they are again, now I've sharpened them up a bit and pointed out the torch! What do you think?
 They're still not great but at least I got two photos of it.




Here are a few better photos of our 'Once In A Lifetime Olympic Torch Experience'...

My dad and my niece Amelia with the torch that Oliver made at playgroup


Lydia was so overwhelmed with excitement that she slept through the whole thing
The 'entourage' that preceded the arrival of the torch




They were trying to whip the crowd into a frenzy







Have you seen the Olympic Torch on it's travels? Did you get any good photos?!

  5. I love that you shared these photos! They definitely capture the feeling of the event - so what if you had to point out where exactly the torch was! Good on you for taking your children to experience it.
