The Big Picture: London 2012 Olympics

The 2012 Summer Olympic Games, officially the Games of the XXX Olympiad (and known informally as London 2012) are in full swing in London, United Kingdom. Around 10,500 athletes from 204 National Olympic Committees (the group responsible for organizing their people’s participation in the games) will compete. Thousands and thousands of images will be made in London of the athletes and the spectators; the venues and the celebrations; the pomp and the circumstance. A search of current images in a wire database reveals images coming into the system at a rate of over 1,000 an hour during the hours of competition, resulting in a major picture editing challenge. A small sampling follows.

Quella che credo sarà la prima di una serie di gallery fotografiche sulle Olimpiadi di Londra.

Sicuramente avranno montagne di materiale da selezionare e vista la qualità alla quale ci ha abituato The Big Picture direi che ne vedremo delle belle.
