I started off the day with shooting some London features. Management wants to put together a featured gallery of iconic images of London. I thought I had a pretty good collection going already SEE PHOTOS HERE But I hit the streets to see what else I could find that screams London.
I just started walking down the street to see what I could find. Below some London postcards sit outside of a carryout store.
The famous fish and chips!
Then I found a street performer at Covent Gardens Market.
After I glanced at my watch I realized I had two hours to get back to my hotel grab the rest of my gear and get to BMX in time for a 3pm start. I arrived to the BMX track just in time. As soon as I walked out of the media room there where hundreds of photographers there to shoot. I was instantly annoyed with the access and the fact it was just time trials with one rider on the track at a time. So I did what I could. Here are some of my favorite images.

Once all the riders where done, I jetted out of their quick and had to get to the water polo arena for the USA men’s v vs Croatia semifinal game. This is my third water polo game and all of the images are starting to look the same!
