    Some photos I took on Saturday of the London o2 Arena and the crazy new building next door (which I love!). Taken with Olympus E-PL1 & OM 50mm f.18 manual lens :2thumbs:

    #4 is killer.

    Pardon my ignorance -- is this building for the Olympics 2012?

    No, it's the Millennium Dome which is now called the O2 Arena. Looking much cleaner than usual too.

    Nice stuff. The Millenium Tent's still there, eh?

    Really champing at the bit for my OM adapter now.

    Its not the olympic stadium that's a few miles away but the O2 arena is being used as an Olympic venue - for the gymnastics I believe.

    Hmm, I've made a cool word. Cool.

    Its so much fun using the OM lens - I have it permanently on my camera - the :43: lenses have taken the back seat. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
