Sleepless nights ... is that why you went out and take all these amazing lights pictures. It is very cool you used the pond to get the reflections.

I have some snapshots of the Olympics, but I am too lazy and tired to process them.

The cauldron looks like a horrid firey trainwreck. The poorest design ever, IMHO. That's not a comment on the photos of it however.

It's actually quite pretty in person.

Nice shots! I got to go to Vancouver and Stanley park one afternoon back in May of 2001. A very beautiful city indeed! I wish I could have made it for the Olympics and I hope to return one day! Thanks for sharing!

We had an unusually warm winter in Vancouver, home of the 2010 Winter/Sping Olympics. These were taken in early February at Vancouver's City Hall, where the tulips were in full bloom and the cherry trees were starting to bud. They are in full bloom now too. What you didn't get to see on TV if you were watching the Olympics were the ski hills devoid of snow. They had to truck in and helicopter in snow from higher elevations for the events.

Ran into some guy at Vancouver International Airport, as the Russian team were going home. Please excuse my ugly mug. :D

3. Plushenko was at the end of the check in line so I just went up to him and asked if I can get a photo with him. He looked tired, but said, "Sure!" Nice guy. He had his silver medal in a fanny pack! Haha..

The Olympic rings glowed yellow whenever a Canadian athlete won gold.






If you watched the closing ceremonies, these lovely ladies were Michael Buble's backup dancers.

This was the scene in downtown Vancouver after the closing ceremonies, at around 1am. Actually, during the Olympics, it was like this every night! Many streets had to be shut down, as there were hundreds of thousands of people there. I've never seen anything like it...












Fireworks every night.
