->> Any suggestions of which Photographer Blogs to follow who will be covering the London Olympics ?

I know for China, 4 years ago, Newsweek had an awesome blog with 3 different photographers blogging for the entire time they were there

Keen to see who will be doing it this year

->> I'm not covering the actual events but I will be photographing events that I can walk up to like the road cycling, marathon, triathlon etc. Most of the time I'll be photographing atmosphere and feature images to show what it is like to be in London while the games are going on.

->> From my previous Olympic experience shooting video and some stills away from the competition I would imagine that most shooters will be consumed by scouting, waiting, shooting, transmitting, eating, and sleeping for four hours before they do it again the next day. Therefore, I don't think many will be able to make regular contributions to their blog.

->> I will be blogging from London,
My posts will be published here,
http://thestar.blogs.com/photoblog/

In fact I already dropped a blog about getting my accreditation yesterday and a clever solution to a credential problem by a staffer in 1972
http://bit.ly/gbezant

So, are any of the photogs in that moat (in the second last picture) still shooting?

Also, I'll be letting people know about new posts on the twitter,
