Lord’s Cricket Ground. London, UK, 2012.
(clicken to embiggen and all that good stuff.)
In honour of our 2-0 victory over the Aussies in the Ashes at Lord’s…a panorama of, well, Lord’s. This may be one of the most amazing grounds I have ever had the pleasure of visiting, football, cricket, or other. The dirt in the far right of the frame is where the wickets were being relaid. The archery section of the 2012 Olympics were held on the ground and as a result, the Middlesex County Cricket Club struck a deal with the Olympics committee: you may use our ground if and only if you re-lay the pitch and the wickets [which, more than likely, needed to be relaid anyway.]. The deal was struck and here we are. On the far right, the brick coloured building, is the main part of the grounds. Walking through the Long Room and realising the history that was made there was one of the highlights of my trip.
