The Olympic and Paralympic Games

14th August 2012

The Olympics is over and the Paralympic Games will soon begin. My kids and I had a lot of fun during The Olympics, living in Greenwich and my studio in Woolwich we felt like we were in the hub of it all.

We watched the races on the Big Screen in Blackheath, had a neighbors Olympic BBQ in our garden and because my daughter was dancing in the Closing Ceremony she was given 2 tickets to the dress rehearsal of the Opening Ceremony, so we had a great evening in the Olympic park. Here’s some quick snaps, taken along the way. I am continuing to prepare for my exhibition opening 13 September.
