Friday Photo: Olympic rings on the Thames

IT's two years today since the Olympic rings for London 2012 arrived on the Thames.

The iconic rings were towed by STEVEN B past London locations such as the Tower of London, the Old Royal Naval College and the Thames Barrier.

The stunt was timed to mark the 150-days-to-go point as anticipation grew for the London Olympics. Here are some photos I took that day.

After I posted one of these photos on Twitter, others shared their London 2012 memories from the river.
