When I moved to Beijing nearly five years ago, the Olympics were a constant topic of conversation even then. All that anticipation bubbled over Friday for the spectacular opening ceremonies—just an amazing feat of design and precision and so. many. People! It was absolutely, incredibly dazzling. (Also, I so want one of those voluminous ombre robes in the first picture. Gorgeous!) Oh, and when those performers popped out of the printing tiles? Goosebumps. My teensy pictures don't do it justice, but these oversized images actually manage to capture some of the sweeping beauty of the show.
I will also go on record as saying Michael Phelps is not bad eye candy either.
