Today being the start of the London 2012 Olympic games, I thought it would be appropriate to feature a photograph that represented the country. After looking through my old London images I didn't see anything that fitted the bill, so I decided that the Union Flag that I recently captured up in the North East of England was the one I wanted to show today. Although the Union Flag is the flag of the United Kingdom rather than of Great Britain, I felt it fitted the day very well. Sadly I won't get to see much (if any) of this year's games. More on that coming soon!
