Here's a different perspective on the 2012 London Olympics: The following photos were all taken with stationary cameras installed by Getty Images in various places throughout the Olympic Games.

Before the Games began, the cameras were installed at the bottom of the pool looking up (@L201PoolCam), over the basketball hoop (@L2012BballCam), high above the judo/wrestling mat (@L2012MatCam), on the Olympic Stadium roof looking down on the finish line (@L2012StadiumCam), looking down on the table tennis games (@L2012TableCam) and looking down on the rhythmic gymnastics mat (@L2012MatCam).

Each camera has its own Twitter feed as well as its own "voice." The cameras don't just tweet their surreal, stark images, they comment on them too.
