London 2012 Olympics Photos

Dorothy and I are very lucky to be here at the London 2012 Olympics!

I’d like to try to share the spirit of the games with some photos. I’ll be posting my best photos from the event here. The newest photos are at the top.

Keep in mind there are lots of photos on this page so it might take a minute or two to load.

I will also be posting them on Facebook, Flickr, and of course Photo.Duncan.co

All of the photographs on this page are Attribution-NonCommercial licensed. That means you can use them (for non-commercial purposes) on your website. You just have to attribute them to me, and link back to Duncan.co

Here is an example of how to give attribution properly. This is an example of how NOT to do it.

Enjoy!

2003 Olympic Bid Plaque on Creekside Bridge

I worked really hard capturing these images for you. Whether it was running as hard as I could to chase down the Torch or walking miles and miles in search of the spirit of the games. I hope I got it and that you feel it too.

UPDATE: February 28th 2010
Vancouver wrapped up the Olympics today with one hell of a strong finish. Team Canada won the gold medal in one of the greatest hockey games of all time. Our 14th gold medal put us at the top of the list for most gold medals any country has ever won in the Winter Olympics. We owned the podium!

We’ve been talking/bitching/moaning/worrying about the Olympics for years and now they’ve come to a close. Before we get all bitter and negative about games’ legacy consider how much fun it was. Have you ever felt so connected and excitement in a city in your life?! I will fondly remember this moment in the history of Vancouver for the rest of my life. We can go back to griping about this and that later, when it’s raining and we’re having coffee together. For now, let’s take time to enjoy and be proud of how we hosted the world!

Thank yous!
First thank you to Dorothy Rawlinson. Dorothy has been working tirelessly for 2+ years on the Olympics. She was heavily involved in hiring literally hundreds of people that ended up putting the games together. Obviously she did a remarkable job in her hiring process given the games went so well. I am super proud of you Dorothy. It was a pleasure to support you during this challenging time. It was incredible get an inside glimpse at just how much work goes into a event like this. To look behind the curtain at the sheer scale of this event was mind boggling. From VANOC HQ to the backlots that the general public doesn’t see I really got a sense of just how challenging it has been to pull off. It’s way more work than you’d think. Way more. So thank you sweetheart.

Thank you Nancy for putting our schedule together and being so organized! Thank you to @airwaves1 for all the tickets etc!!!

Thank you Team Canada! Thank you Jon Montgomery for being so charismatic! You couldn’t have represented Canada any better.

Thank you to all the local photographers, videographers, and bloggers who kept us all informed and engaged.

Thank you True North Media House for the bringing the local media together in an organized and yet decentralized fashion. I had nothing to do with #tnmh but I tagged some stuff and hope I added some value. #tnmh and #van2010 we’re arguably the best sources of Olympics information and media that we’re available during the games.
