An attempt to bring some Olympic Games spirit in EPZ, so far I have seen just two pictures uploaded. This is a shot from a lustre print picture originally shot with KodakChrome ISO 100, if my memory serves me well. The ticket lasted for all day so I had shot some with daylight, the picture was taken when it was already dark. Being a good day I thought that ISO would be sufficient, although an ISO 400 would had served me better; Looking at the pic I must have had a wide aperture used. Camera used was a Zenit EM, with its Helios standard lens 44mm F/2, handheld. Girls have started running. I am not sure if the blurring is just sufficient or the settings in speed were wrong, I had never shot any sport pictures with an SLR when I took it. There was a vibe 24 hours a day. It was thrilling to be there.

A blast from the past and caught the moment. Almost forgotten that Olympics in the fuvore and excitement of London. With the camera held just a little higher might have avoided the head of the left spectator. Only a thought. Paul

I was ashamed to hide the view from the person at my back,even for just a bit. Most of the people, not to say all, were well mannered, we also did the wave to men runners following. I wasn't thet happy that i had a tall spectator in front of me and because the seats were numbered I couldn't go anywhere, but thankfully he left later... Smile

I must say that despite the camera's capabilities (faster shutter speed is 1/500 sec) and my photographic abilities (000) I am proud with the fact that the printed part of the frame (during modern digital processing part of the picture recorded in the film is lost) contains fully 5 athletes while they were just 4 athletes positioned to start running in lanes 4.5.6. and 7. Err that must be my Olympic achievement and No, I have not got won the Gold in modesty.
