Hi all. we are less then a day away from the open ceremony and i am sure many fellow toggers will be experiencing this event in one form or the other!

So if you are one of those toggers who have experience the Olympics in some shape or form and took some snap shots, this is the place to post them :)

I myself did not get any Olympic tickets but i will visit the Olympic park. i have also attended one of the Olympic torch relay this morning which was cool.

here is my pics:

Good shots, but this is the "General Photography Talk" section, & looking at the content of your images, I'm moving it to People.

I know there are no people in the shot, but here is Tower Bridge on Friday evening.

Shortly after this the speed boat piloted by David Beckham, and carrying the Olympic Flame came through. The second image is highly cropped. Unfortunately I was only set up for longer exposures.

That is true but I guess you could throw it in the Sports section?

TBH, one of my pet peeves is going to the photo sharing section and clicking on a thread that doesn't have any pictures but instead is asking for advice on how to shoot something.
