I managed to catch the last day of the Olympic torch relay route as it passed through Shepherd’s Bush. The weather was hot, the crowds were out, and there was an overall good buzz – people seemed genuinely excited to see the torch.
Here is bearer 136 being prepped. I believe it was her birthday.
Bearer 135 on the way to handover.
The handover, with TV crew closely watching.And it wouldn’t be complete without some antipodeans wildly cheering from the top of a shop!
Meanwhile, I was awkwardly stood trying to stop people stepping on the bag of onions I just happened to be carrying. Best not to ask.
