I think I can see Paul McCartney from here. Smile

In all seriousness -- this is a great image, good job of stitching together multiple shots.
Sue and I loved the opening ceremonies and we are glued to the TV and internet following the games.
It brings back memories of when the games were here in Los Angeles (1984).
