The Olympic Games held in London opened on 27 July 2012 with a production directed by Danny Boyle with the theme ‘Isle of Wonders’. While scouting the day before on the Wednesday for a good spot to photograph the fireworks from outside the Olympic park, I was given a ticket for the technical rehearsal of the opening ceremony. The London Olympics Opening Ceremony was impressive and bonkers. I must say that seeing the production inside the stadium was more impressive as what you can experience watching it on TV. Although parts had been left out like the James Bond sequence and Mr Bean to keep people revealing the surprise. I have put a selection of images together to give a short impression.
