February 4th – The Olympic Torch run

So the Olympic torch was coming through my neck of the woods today. Shawna’s fiddle group – Bad to the Bow was playing at an official ceremony to watch the passing of the torch. The runners were supposed to come down to where we – and the rest of the crowd – were, but I gather plans had changed and they weren’t coming down to us, we were all to go up to the road and watch! Except… no one told the crowd. I over heard a few people talking and headed up… and once everyone else found out about it … it was like a mob scene. I didn’t realize how many rude people live in my town. Pushing and shoving to get a curb side view…. whether you were there first or not! Rude, rude, rude!

I got a shot just after the second torch was lit and they were off running again.

  1. Wow, great capture!

  2. That is so cool. How lucky you were to have been able to grab that shot. I love it.

  3. Canadians can’t be rude. It’s not in their nature. Must have been a group of thugs from Seattle 🙂
