OLYMPICS!

Dear readers, this week ‘O’ could only be the *O*LYMPICS!
First, though, apologies for temporary interruption in service! Haven’t been on vacation but  ---working! Very hard! Results to be seen in due course! Watch this space!
Now, where was I? Here are some images from this month’s Olympic Games: 
WHAT WAS THE BEST PART OF THE OLYMPICS FOR YOU?
And do check out other posts - Alphabe-Thursday  @ Jenny Matlock, Ruby Tuesday & Rednesday!
And, finally, thank you to all my dear readers who have visited or commented. .
Have a great weekend!
Enjoy and see you next time – though unfortunately I'll be away on business for next few weeks. Sigh! L
XOXO LOLA:)

Oh! Gee! I think seeing Peter Townsend plyaing the guitar onstage is really something! (this is showing my age, obviously!)
Arent' the colors of the light displays brilliant!
My favorite part of the Olympics was watching the dressage competition with my daughter.

you know. i didn't watch any of the olympics this year. the tv isn't on very much in our home. and so i guess the habit just carried through.

love the pic of (who is that? he's so familiar!) the space man.

Great photos of a great event. And my favorite part were the relay teams...in swimming and in track. I love that team spirit!

Wonderful images, the Olympics really is a visual feast.

Gemma Wiseman said...

The drama of colours and light in these photos is extraordinary! Love the visual blast in the first photo!

For me, the pageantry is nice although secondary to Phelps becoming the greatest. The sporting pursuits are the best (although we don't have Beefeaters over here - they are cool). I was able to go to the 1984 games in Los Angeles and hanging around the venues. The entire event is amazing in any city!
