From Beijing 2008 to London 2012 Olympics

Spente le luci di Pechino ecco delle insolite immagini notturne di Londra, l’unica città, a parte Roma, dove vorrei vivere e prossima sede delle Olimpiadi del 2012.

Le foto sono state scattate da Jason Hawkes in notturna da un elicottero, con le più evolute macchine digitali montate su due giroscopi. Una visione  di Londra che anche i più assidui frequentatori, difficilmente avranno già visto.
