And two more panoramas!
Cough was pretty bad this the morning – but luckily that was it… The rest of the day didn’t cough much at all. Ya – realizing having swimming in the morning was so much better – there are so many different medally (is that a word) things going on in the evening. Really hate to chose. Big medal stories at gymnastics and swimming and judo and rowing – although if I had planned a bit better might have been able to do two of them. Robert Beck went to rowing in the morning – said it took an hour and 15 minutes to get there – two and half to get back! ack
I’ll tell you – from the MPC, which, in the top picture is the small unmarked rectangular building in the very bottom center of the map – it takes about 20-25 minutes to walk from there to the Olympic Stadium.
Saw Steve Dykes and he was nice enough to show me around – he was a photo manager in Vancouver and now is a full fledged venue manager, really nice guy. Did a panorama inside and outside of the venue. I Shot the last half of the Hungary vs Romania game and then the first half of the US vs Great Britain.
At halftime I skipped over to swimming (not literally) – I got to my position about 15 minutes before the first race. Normally I wouldn’t dare show up that late but the ticket I had was different from the B ticket (which is deck-level but I needed to be there at least an hour and half beforehand to make sure I had a decent spot), I’ve had that the last few days. I was in an assigned seat – up in the stands – first level. Angle was ok. US did great tonight I think three golds and a bunch of other stuff… Pictures weren’t so great cause no one really freaked out… Phelps didn’t do much at all, I, along with every one else, was hoping he’d show a lot of emotion… oh well. My spot today -the B spot I was talking about is on the opposite side of the pool – in the picture -it’s on the top right:
