In honour of the Summer Olympic Games which began today in Beijing, I’m posting a photo of the Great Wall of China, taken near Beijing, by my father. He was an avid amateur photographer and usually had his camera with him wherever he went.
These are a couple more pictures he took on that same trip.
Over the next two weeks, there will be no shortage of coverage about the Games. I’m personally looking forward to searching out the opinions of bloggers who are in China to cover the Games. It’s an opportunity to go “behind the scenes” which is the benefit you get from reading blogs, as opposed to mainstream coverage.
