Well, it was only a matter of time before my photography would be put on the back burner yet again.
This time with a very good cause – London 2012.
I know by the time I write this post, the Olympics will be long forgotten and our lives more or less back to normal, but for me as a volunteer at the games, this will be one memory that I won’t forget in a long time.
I was privileged amongst thousands of people who applied to be accepted as a Volunteer Cast for the London 2012 Olympic games. I, with many others had two roles – to be a drummer and to marshal. The drumming only happened during the Opening Ceremony (OC) and to be a marshal happened at both OC & CC (Closing Ceremony).
I, with the wonderful cast I had the privilege of performing with during the games ceremonies, can safely and proudly say, “I am and always will be a Pandemonium Drummer and athletes marshal at the London 2012 Olympic games.”
I think this article in the local (where I live) paper sums up my our experience as volunteers at the Olympics.
After the wonderful experience, my body, long suffering family and photography mojo decided that I should end my Olympic journey and not continue on to do the Paralympics.
Now that you all know where I have been for the last few months……..
……let us get this show back on the road.
ION – Applied to Uni and I got accepted. So God willing, you will see more updates and content up in here.
