Houses of Parliament lights up for the Olympics and Paralympics

One of the many London 2012 highlights has been the night lights of London. I already shared with you the Tower Bridge by night illuminations.

Further west along the Thames, there is a different kind of illumination.

Every night during the Olympics and Paralympics from 9.30pm onwards, you can watch a video projection onto Houses of Parliament. Images from 1908 and 1948 Olympics are projected across the river. There are some ‘modern’ images as well of athletes that are competing in the 2012 Olympics.

It is a very beautiful collection of iconicย  images and I got some goosebumps just looking at them. They really set the scene for the great Olympic games.

If you live in or around London or visit, make sure to go and visit before this night event finishes.

The important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning but taking part. The essential thing in life is not conquering but fighting well.
