Saturday Snapshot- London Cable Car

I am posting this for the Saturday Snapshot meme hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books.

Here is a new mode of transportation in London for Olympics and beyond. I took these pictures in July 2012 shortly after Cable Car was open for public.

It has been great watching the Olympics on TV - London has done itself proud. Maybe you can help my husband & I work out why they're using the little remote control cars in the middle of the atletics arena?
We love them scooting around in the background of many of the images, but just can't work out their purpose?????

Hi
Thanks for stopping by! I wondered the purpose of the remote control cars too! I think theu are used to retrieve javelins, discuses etc from the field.

Ahh I wish I was in London watching the Olympics, or just being around the atmosphere, great photos!

That would be a great way to travel above the traffic. Plus a great way to see all the sights. Here's Mine

It's been great watching on television, but must be awesome to see in person.

Great shots! My son and his kids are there right now, and I'm sharing some of it in MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

Very cool! I am also wondering if they will stay after the Olympics...

Marie said...

Yup I don't think I'd be caught dead in those, scary!
I'd love it if you would stop by and come see my pic for today.

That looks like a fun way to see London from the air! (I say that, but I probably would be a little freaked out from the heights.)

They are wonderful photos, but it looks a bit scary up there! What a great experience to be in London for the Olympics.

Interesting shots. I hadn't seen this new cable car, it looks great. Brona- I'd noticed those little cars too- they're used for transporting javelins and discuses. Pretty cool.

Wow, that looks really cool! London has moved up on my bucket list of places to visit . I have a feeling I will love it and not because of the cable cars!
Here's my photo this week:
