Olympic Torch arrives in Doncaster. (Part 1)

The Olympic torch arrived in Doncaster today. These are some of the photos from the build up to its arrival on Bennetthorpe.

A few of us were there early…

A few needed to ask questions…

Some wanted to photograph hats…

and some wanted to sell you stuff…

But most of all, people wanted to be together, to celebrate mum and nan…

some wanted to laugh because they were nervous…

and others would cry…

some would squeal…

for some though, it was all just too much…

Never forget though, those who bide their time and wait patiently…

those who sing and dance…

and those little rascals cheeky enough to catch a ride instead of walking like the rest of us…

Part 2 to follow shortly. I’ve just got to process the shots.

I’d love it if you passed on this post to your friends, so they can share in our day. Please re-tweet also if you are on Twitter.

Lets get the message out that, Doncaster is a great place.

Finally, I’m going to set up a separate page where I will put a gallery of all my shots from the day. I’ll add the link below once it is set up.

  1. How exciting! Last night I got to attend the Olympic swim trials which are here in Omaha…so exciting to see the Lochte/Phillips 400 race! Can hardly wait for the games to begin!

  2. Great compilation so far. I love the boy riding the police bike. YOu might want to approach the Constabulary and sell it to them for their publicity. It would make a good one for them.

    • I had a brilliant time. Not so much for the torch, but for the photography experience. Shoulder to shoulder with the pros. It was a buzz.

    • Thanks, but it’s my post processing, not the Wb.My style for this was dropping the saturation a bit, then bringing back some detail. So it was purposeful. Thanks again for your comment.
