There have been dress rehearsals going on for the Opening Ceremonies here over the past couple of weeks, and the one last Saturday was reported to have featured a grand fireworks exhibit that will not only include the National Stadium (where the ceremony is being held) but also much of the surrounding parts of the city.
Like many other photographers, I was armed with a camera hoping to make a nice fireworks feature in advance of the big night.
Of course, there's no way the Planners-That-Be were going to share any more visuals (doing so would seriously dilute the effect on Friday night), so there were no fireworks.
There were a couple of upsides to the night however. I did get to take a peaceful walking tour of the nearby venues.
