Orbit and Stadium
Obviously the Olympic theme has to continue so here is another. Surprisingly behind one of the MacDonalds restaurants (yes there is more then one in the park) was a great place for photos. I quickly gathered up my family to this spot after taking this shot, for a group photo. Of course I always take them so am rarely in shots.
The Orbit structure that you can see on the right here is a piece of artwork created for the park. I guess the London 2012 website can explain it better then me os here’s an extract:
“The search for a permanent artwork on the Olympic Park was instigated by the Mayor of London’s Office, which invited more than 30 international artists to submit their ideas for a sculpture of up to 180 metres tall.
Following a lengthy selection process, the Orbit – designed by internationally acclaimed artist Anish Kapoor – was chosen. As well as promising a unique moment and experience for visitors, the spiralling red structure successfully represented both London and the UK, and was reflective of the five Olympic rings.”
