Olympic flame [Explore 20/07/2012]

The Olympic torch came to Maidstone today at 6.45am, so I made the effort to attend and was in town by 5.50am!! This guy was running pretty fast and it was all over in a flash. Still, it will be the only time I see it in my life-time, let alone in Maidstone........ I don't have a telephoto lens, so had to crop this one - I know it's not a particularly good shot and I had to bump up the ISO to 1250 to get a fast enough shutter speed in the available light, but it is a reasonable memento of the day;)
