A photofeature on the Youth Olympic Games, Singapore
My tryst with Singapore has always been filled with tourist attractions. But this time, I was lured to Singapore by a sporting event . Sitting in the stadium and listening to the cheers that reverberated through the stands, it was amazing to experience the energy out here. The opening ceremony of the Youth Olympic Games that saw more than 200 countries participating was just about to begin. My goodie bag was filled with trinkets that added to the light and sound of the event .The performances were vibrant and the stadium cheered as the athletes marched on. The Olympics anthem was sung, as the torch was brought in on a float . Fireworks galore, the entire Marina Bay was bathed in lights and music.
Very good pics taken in dark. I seldom manage to get show worthy action pics in night time
Thanks Shrinidhi 🙂
Nice pics..am sure the fireworks would have been a treat to the eyes.
Awesome pictures! The fireworks display looks magnificent. Must have been a treat to the eye to see it live.
An event worth to cover… And LOVELY captures.

lovely capture ! The event,however, is monstrous waste of money. This much of money being wasted for entertainment of few hours . Pathetic . I know that in India it is worse !!
The shot are fantastic and lively! Sure it must be great delight to view.
I could not agree with Munish. Such colorful celebrations are necessary to rejuvenate people periodically. Nice pictures. I hope my niece there would have enjoyed the events.
