...Where we attempt to recreate the Sistine Chapel using foam fingers., a photo by MAStapleton on Flickr.
Given the rules of the 52 weeks projects regarding any Olympic trademarked things or locations, this is the best picture I could use for Week 1 of the Olympics. They were giving these out free during the dressage portion of the equestrian events of the Olympics. I can faithfully report that the foam fingers also soaked up the rain quite well.
We love a foam finger. We love a foam finger even more when we can use it to recreate the creation narrative from the Sistine Chapel. I'm sure Michelangelo would have approved.
This is actually the photo I liked better, but I couldn't post it to the Guardian group, given the Olympics rules.
