Just found a bunch of pictures taken during the 2012 London Olympics that are intended to be posted. In our initial post of Olympics snapshots last year (it’s here), we focused on the events we saw. Here, the focus is on the venues.

We did not bother to get to the top but it must have a very good view of the stadium next to it.

The other (more horizontal) big red object on the main venue was this installation by Coca-Cola.
