Yesterday night I went to the MCG with my brother (who was a Games Volunteer) and we watched the Commonwealth Games. I can say now that it was perhaps better being there than actually watching it on tv. Actually, it was a different perspective.
I’ve uploaded two Photo sets from the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games onto Flickr.
Here’s the photos from the Closing Ceremony.
It was a fairly interesting night to say the least. The fireworks were as loud as ever lighting up the entire MCG, and then covering much of the crowd and the MCG with smoke.
And also, the Mens Triathlon held on the previous Saturday.
All shots were taken with my Nikon Coolpix 4500. Shots were taken using (P) Programmed Manual, (S) Shutter Priority and (A) Aperture Priority modes (and some shots had exposure compensation turned on).
