Oh yes - you have really captured the feel & atmosphere of the place here John!
John Prior: Thanks Chris, very pleased with this one, I was unsure about the gear to take, as I got the impression that pro DSLR's and long lenses might not get through security, so used my compact Sony NEX system.
Go Bahamas! Everyone has a camera these days. But the wide-angle works nicely.
John Prior: This was shot with a 50mm fast prime, so 75mm on my Sony NEX
I feel that joy, John. You have passed it on.
John Prior: Everything seemed to come good for the Olympics, even the weather.

John Prior: Thanks Martin, really glad I went.
Cracking picture John. I like how you have caught the picture on his phone

I did not manage to get any tickets John.
John Prior: I left it until fairly late before deciding and had to pay a lot for it, but got a front row seat.
Very good shot John, you were in just the right place for this one. I just love seeing people attempt to take pictures with iPads, I noticed a chap on the cycling trying to do pan shots with one as the riders went by, it would have been interesting to see the results.
John Prior: Yes I've seen quite a few people using iPads, I suppose if the resolution is even bigger than the iPhone which is pretty decent then they must be fairly capable.
