27/07/12 My view of the Opening ceremony from Victoria Park
As 9pm on the 27th July drew ever closer, I decided that I would base myself at Victoria Park, just across the road from the Olympic park. It had three big screens, allowing thousands of people to watch the Opening Ceremony.
Below are some of the images I took that evening.
The biggest big screen in the park was what I would watch.
The park also featured an observation wheel, allowing people views over the nearby Olympic park.
At exactly 20:12pm, the RAF Red Arrows performed a flypast firstly over the Olympic stadium then here in Victoria park before they flew over Hyde Park in central London.
This image shows just how close to the Opening Ceremony I was. The lights on the right are from the Olympic Stadium as It illuminated the sky with some fantastic light displays.
Although not the best of mobile images, this is one I took when the firework displays began. There were clear in the background, which made you feel more part of the Ceremony.
