You can't take a photo of this, it's already gone.

This week I have been mostly... sleepy

I have been mostly playing with my new Canon 5D Mk II

I'm currently reading... White Gold Wielder, Stephen Donaldson

I am mostly listening to... Muse

I am currently... Writing a paper

When I should be... Working harder

I am most looking forward to... The Muse concert on Thursday :)

This weekend I am... probably cooking an Easter dinner for everyone.

Dragonboats

The final leg of the torch involved crossing False Creek on an Inuit canoe, and the flame passed on the water to a dragonboat.

Cheating?

The Olympic relay gets passed to someone who rides the tram down to Granville Island. Actually, they've used a lot of random transportation for the flame, including surfing with it, riding in canoes and dragon boats.

Yaletown fireworks

As they lit the Olympic cauldron a floating barge fired off loads of fireworks around False Creek. I think they're firing them off every evening.

The Olympic torch arrives at Yaletown

These were taken on Thursday, when the torch made it to the Yaletown stage for the end of the penultimate leg.

The torch...

The Olympic torch came right outside my work on Thursday. It was pretty cool actually, even though it wasn't anyone famous carrying it (like Arnie, who carried it this morning)!

The city...

I just got back from watching some of the torch relays. I'll try and post some of the photos tomorrow but my laptop's not handling he large file sizes of my new camera very well :/

Reflections...

The Olympic build-up

A lot of installations and art have been set up in the city. These were taken on a wander last weekend.
