I got to Vancouver at 10:15am this morning, dropped everything off at the condo and headed for the Main Press Center (MPC). I took the 12 block walk and stopped to grab some photos of the Olympic vibes in the city.
This was shot at GE Plaza. I am not sure what they are doing here, but there was a lot of activity. I will try to find out more in the coming days. Below, you will see that the countdown clock is now showing 2 days and counting.
In the previous blog entry I talked about the potential confusion of shooting the Olympics. Here it is, day one, and I already hit a snafu. I took the early flight here so that I could make the required 1pm photographers meeting, and showed up to find out that they moved it to 10am today. Nice huh? Luckily I know the organizers and they took care of me.
This is one of the photo editing areas within the MPC. Also located in this area is the USOC, IOC, Reuters, Sports Illustrated, AP and others.
Here is the main hallway in the MPC. To the left of this hallway is the water and the main broadcast center where NBC is located.
