many times yes. but a lot of the times i went, only once did i have a tripod. on the closing day i went too and saw the fireworks just for the fun of it. and it was fun! i was in a huge crowd, could barely more.but yeah it was great
Nice seeing it from the other side and at night! ^.^ I got some shots from above the ice rink during the day.
The amusing thing was seeing the change in crowds. I went roaming the day after the opening ceremonies and then again this past saturday and there were significantly more people about. Day one, it barely seemed like anything big was going on. XD
