A photo of the Olympic Cauldron holding the Olympic flame in downtown Vancouver, BC, Canada. My time at the Olympics was AMAZING! The spirit and energy involved in every single thing I did and saw was off the map!

WOW Mom! Great photo!
Thanks honey! I can always count on you! And you can always count on me!
Hi Kathy! Thanks so much for your comment!….to the right, the fence was still up quite high, with the mesh too tight to take a proper shot. I took this image straight on from a ways back, with my lens at 300mm, so although there was still a fence, at this angle and distance I could avoid it. To the left, there was a two to three hour wait to go up a set of stairs to be close up and at eye level with the flames. We had tickets to a hockey game so we couldn’t wait that long. I’m happy with this shot though! Thanks again stopping by!
Wohoo Olympics! Nice photo Lisa! :)
Hi there stranger! Thanks Kenny!
Great capture Lisa!! It would have been great to have been there and sensed some of that magical spirit in person!! :))
Hi Vicki! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! The experience was WAY beyond what I thought it would be. It was infectious and everyone there embraced it! It was so special to feel connected globally like that!
Great shot Lisa! I really wish I had gone over to Vancouver to feel the energy of it all! Sounds like it was a great experience!
Hi Yvette! I wish you could have gone over too! Did you watch some of it on TV? (Well, I know you watched hockey cause Rick was with you!)
great shot Lisa. What an amazing experience that must have been to be at the Olympics. I was glued to my set for two weeks
Thanks Dave! And yes it was beyond amazing! An experience I’ll never forget!
Beautiful capture Lisa…….what great memories the games have brought. This looks wonderful !!
Thanks so much Sean! It was amazing to be there…energy beyond my wildest dreams! You must have expereinced it in Calgary in the 80’s?
I’m still kicking myself for not getting in there for a day :( Oh well I will just look at this from time to time with great pride in my heart. Perfect capture Lisa :)
Hi Shell! I really wish we could have made it work for the four of us to go together! But you can live vicariously through me on this one! We’ll have many more adventures together no doubt!
Great shot Lisa, looks really good against the blue sky!
Thanks Martin! It was a gorgeous day that day!
