Artist's Description

The Olympic flame and its numerous torches paid a visit to Edinburgh on the 14th of June 2012, and I thought it was worth going to have a look at the spectacle. This photograph is of one of the torchbearers, and the accompanying cavalcade, proceeding along Horse Wynd, between the Scottish parliament and the palace of Holyroodhouse. This shot is a bit more interesting than most because of the collision seen taking place to the right of the torchbearer. Notice how the female police officer (dressed in grey running attire), is literally pushing the TV cameraman aside as she tries to get past him. Edinburgh, Scotland. June, 2012.
