Opening Ceremonies

Did you watch, what did you think?   I thought it was amazing.  I loved that it was perfectly British, I loved that they did their own thing that was completely different than what has been done in the past.  I loved that they told stories about who they were and about their past.  I loved that they showcased their iconic figures. 

I found myself snapping pictures of my TV screen wanting to capture the moments as they happened.  Here are some of my favorite parts (please forgive the unedited photos, I haven't had time to crop them)

I loved the section on the Industrial Age


and how they forged the rings


and the way the rings rose up into the air


and the sparkle


and James

with the Queen


I LOVED this part...


the lighting of the torch


so beautiful


and the finale!


Way to go London and way to go Danny Boyle, I thought you did a fantastic job!

  1. New to your blog , but I am impressed that you liked the opening ceremony of the Olympics and that you got it, a large majority of people from other con tries just didn't get the concept - Louise (Essex UK)
