Olympic Torch in Southampton

On Saturday 14th July 2012 the Olympic Torch visited Southampton.  I wasn't sure whether I wanted to battle the crowds and the congested roads, and the weather could best be described as "meh", but in the end I decided it was one of those once in a live time events and went for it.

Traffic both in and out was surprisingly easy, but maybe I just got lucky with my timing.

I picked a spot where the torch was going to be twice as it made it's way to and from St Mary's Stadium, so I was able to first photograph it from the roof of the Royal Oak Pub, and then again from street level.
