The Olympics; Reworked

The Olympics; Reworked

14th August 2012

So the 2012 Olympic Games are now over, and if I’m being honest, a few months back I never thought I would feel even the slightest bit lost without the daily hype surrounding the athletes and their sporting achievements, and which country is in the lead with gold medals. But incredibly, I am now. Thankfully […]

13th August 2012

I’ve been watching the build up to the Olympics for a while and indeed have seen this banner in my hometown of Chiswick for weeks, each night on the 94 bus stop at Turnham Green Terrace. Today I walked past it before going home to see the closing ceremony and wanted to capture its sentiment. […]

Gold in W4

Gold in W4

We spotted a gold post box at the town hall in Chiswick over the weekend, sparkling in the sunshine. Looked great and was there in honour of one of the victorious crew from the rowing mens four, Pete Reed, who lives and trains in the area. His team mates Alex Gregory, Tom James and Andrew Triggs […]

A Record-breaking Lift

A Record-breaking Lift

8th August 2012

On Saturday I went off to Excel to watch the men’s weightlifting 94kg division. I’m a fan of the World’s Strongest Man competitions, so I was really looking forward to seeing how much these guys could lift. I was not left disappointed! It was unbelievable watching them lift such enormous weight. It’s incredible to see how far athletes can […]

Celebrity Spots

8th August 2012

Even though London has been a bit of a ghost town over the last week or so, there’s been a fair amount of celeb spotting to be had on the tube. Athletes past and present, commentators and presenters galore. They all seem to have shunned the Olympics lanes in favour of the good old underground. […]

Olympic Coin

7th August 2012

I almost forgot about the ridiculousness of paying £1.20 for a miniature bottle of no-name water in Stratford station this weekend after receiving a sparkling new Olympic 50 pence piece in my change. According to The Royal Mint, these coins are all but being taken out of circulation by the general public as they hoard […]

Olympic Logo a Day

2nd August 2012

A lovely alternative Olympic logo idea. Sarah Hyndman of With Relish, a London based design agency, started a project called  Olympic Logo a Day. The idea was to take a photo of random objects arranged to resemble the Olympic Rings each day for a whole year. Not only Sarah was involved, the project was open to contributions from […]

Olympic Vermin

2nd August 2012

This is a great animation called ‘Olympic Vermin’. Here we see some of London’s vermin recreating the Olympic torch relay through the streets of London. It’s a very fun, cheeky take on what is essentially a massive part of the Olympic ceremony. Created by Amael Isnard and Leo Bridle, and produced by Beakus.

When the torch relay came to Kew my daughters were there. As Samsung and Lloyds representatives handed out flags, clappers and ribbons the girls waved and bashed their handouts in sheer joy of the torch soon to arrive.Then the Coca-Cola truck came by – reminding them of the drink only allowed as a treat now […]
