Yet another fantastic InFocus photo-set from the London 2012 Opening Ceremony.
The Beijing 2008 Opening Ceremony was never going to be an easy act to follow, but I tend to think that London performed admirably. With some utterly memorable moments from the Queen, Daniel Craig, Rowan Atkinson, and Kenneth Branagh, the ceremony far exceeded my expectations, and I walked away feeling thoroughly patriotic and proud.
As a testament to the instilled sense of excitement in the British populace, over one million spectators have lined the roads today for the men’s cycling road race. Out in my local town, I can honestly say that I’ve never seen as many people congregated there as I did today. A truly fantastic feeling.
For those of you that are interested, I’ll be posting photographs to Instagram (username: mattalexander) and Path throughout the Games.
