A winter Olympics in my backyard

2010 Winter Olympics Vancouver

The world’s largest celebration of sport is about to take place in my back yard, no really, my backyard.  Here is my first post covering the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver British Columbia Canada as seen by a resident living in the heart of the Olympic Zone.

Each of the above images were taken within three blocks of my home in Vancouver and is a sneak peak at a city in preparation to host the world, and to celebrate the highest level of dedication to athletic excellence.
