The Olympic flame passes through town

I don't usually post anything newsworthy on my LJ, but the Olympic torch passed through town just over an hour ago. I am completely underwhelmed by the whole Olympics hooha, but as it was only 5 minutes walk away and I had nothing better to do, I toddled along to watch it go by.

It was difficult to get good shots because the torch-bearer was hemmed in by support vehicles. Also, after a long procession of sponsored vehicles,whose purpose was rather difficult to define, the actual torch went by in what seemed like seconds.

However, everyone was in a good mood. The sun shone and it was a happy occasion.

Unfortunately, the bright sunshine made it look rather as though the runner had come out in his pyjamas!
