Olympic Flame And Moon

Olympic Flame And Moon


I took the month of February off in 1988 to work for Nikon at the Winter Olympics. One evening I attended a Medals Ceremony in Olympic Plaza across from City Hall. While waiting for the presentations, standing elbow to elbow in a huge crowd, I turned around (with a giant monster lens) and spotted the fingernail moon next to the Olympic Flame on top of the Calgary Tower. It was an amazing moment for me, full of pride in my city and country, lugging around dream equipment and having a great time.
