#L2012DAYS - They were the happiest of times
One last video. Little more to say than, it’s a montage - don’t quite have the silks of the Beeb but hopefully you will get the jist…
Watch, enjoy. Citius, Altius, Fortius dear viewer…
N.B. Piece includes an excerpt from “Salut D’Amour” performed by Julian Lloyd Webber, London Symphony Orchestra and STOMP, which featured in the London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony. The audio is taken from the OST album without permissions - but used entirely for non-commercial purposes to reminiscence, remember and have a damn good sob. If any issues, please let me know directly..!
#L2012DAYS - The Torch Relay comes to Richmond
The date, July 24th 2012. We are three days away from the start of the London 2012 Olympic Games. And the torch is on its final journey to East London.
This footage charts part of the Torch Relay through Richmond town. The spot? Richmond Circus, where the Torch would head on to Kew and Ealing.
It would seem this year, 2012, is drawing to an end. I can’t believe it, and I’m sure many of you can’t either.
I have been - for a little while - pondering a last hurrah retrospective… thing, posting some videos, photos and writing reflecting on the event that was London 2012.
Therefore, I’ve imaginatively latched onto a ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ theme, but rather than follow tradition and find myself talking about the Olympics in 2013 (and so look like a sad fool), I’ve started the clock as of today: December 20th. And from now through to the 31st, I’ll look to post some fresh pieces daily, for anyone else looking to reflect, deal with Post Olympic Depression or get away from awful Festive fare.
In a rare pique of wisdom, I’ve latched onto the #L2012DAYS hashtag on Twitter and would encourage anyone reading to use it and share their own thoughts and memories of the amazing Summer we had.
This is for everyone.
