Anticipating the Olympic Torch Arrival

7th July 2012 hundreds of spectators line the route waiting for the Olympic Torch Relay to pass by. Starting out as a beautiful day, the weather deteriorated as the appointed time drew closer. When the heavens opened with torrential rain, the crowds stoically stood their ground in these pretty familiar British Summer weather conditions. During this captured moment of anticipation, it could be thought that these two girls, who are clearly not prepared for the weather conditions, are taking a longing backwards glance at the event marshall who has come prepared with an umbrella.
