The Spirit of the Olympic Flame!
Most of you will know that "fur and feather" is my photographic passion. However, the Olympic Torch was due to pass through Rugby and I had the unusual and overwhelming urge to be part of it. I chose to view on Dunchurch Road near to Kingsway. Arriving early, I was surprised at the number of people already waiting with these numbers swelling considerably before the Torch and convoy arrived. A quick word with the marshalls informed me that a "kiss" would occur in the vicinity and I was pleased to be able to capture the passing on of the flame. I offer below some images and hope that you were able to participate in this special event.
Mind your heads!
Waiting for the "Kiss"
The Flame Comes
