The Olympic Champion

Olympic Gold Medalist

Charlotte Kalla screaming of joy after winning the women's 10K cross-country race at the Vancouver Olympics on Tuesday. The winning time was 24.58,4. Heja Sverige! It was her first Olympic race. Not a bad start! Anna Haag, finished in fourth place, in her Olympic debut. All photos in this mosaic are from Haninge and I shot these during a few weeks last year.

My goodness, this is utterly incredible. What a mosaic and great to hear of her success, but it's your talent that is bowling me over...

Am so enjoying the Olympics from Vancouver. Good to see this shot. I loved the one of you too, Steffe.

The mosaic collage took around five minutes to do. The news photo was taken just as Charlotte crossed the finishing line yesterday. I use a software called Photomosaic. It is no longer on the market. I have a flickr set with 130 similar mosaics.

Amazing mosaic! And, yeah, Sweden!

I must say you had enough of the right kind of photos to make this image pop. Good job on that.

Thanks a bunch for visiting my Brookville Daily Photo and for the comment. Sometimes I don't know what to post each day but it is usually something that I just took a picture of that caught my eye. This post is like that. I was experimenting with shutter speed and aperature to see if I could stop motion and it seemed to work in this photo you saw.

I always enjoy coming here.
