With the sun shining overhead and the smell of the Olympic spirit in the air, it was the perfect day for taking some photographs as YOG snapper Billy Rowlinson made his way to the Tower of London for the announcement of the GB shooting team this week.
The team, made up of 10 athletes, happily posed for the press in front of the iconic London monument flanked by two Yeoman Warders, otherwise known as Beefeaters.
Admitting this was his first time at the famous landmark, local boy Billy also took the opportunity to be the subject for a change and got his picture taken with the ceremonial guardians of the Tower.
Check out Billy’s awesome pictures from the announcement and look out for the Queen’s Guard (the ones with the furry hats) in the background. How do they stand so still for so long?
