Default London Olympics.. the aftermath...

A very short wander down to the north side of the Olympic park... with the E3 + 14-54 to see how much has changed since the end of Sept...

They've already started to dismantle the temp structures this side of the park ..

1.



2.



3.



4. Warning...



5. Paralympic's Tennis Courts at East Way .. well whats left of them.



6. Rubble .. part of one of 3 bridges that were built



7. Looks as if someone was in a hurry to get out



8. OP gate 224



9. Too think you could not even point a camera in this direction when the games were on without being chased by security or the army... The Checkpoints and barriers are gone .. last time I was there you could not get this close.



All in B&W .. think it suits the mood down their .. the thousands that were employed there have all gone and its just the odd lone security gaur
