Olympic Torch Relay - Cheltenham

By Rapido57
Taken yesterday just outside the Boys' College in Cheltenham. I could hardly believe the number of people who had turned out to see 'the flame', not easy to get a position for a photo, I was on a low wall just behind the pavement; but am reasonably happy with this picture which shows the flame, the relay runner, the security runners and I just love the expression of awe on the little girls face opposite. Cropped a little from the original.
