Abandoned Olympics

Makeshift tents are pitched in front of the Olympic beach volleyball stadium in Athens August 11, 2006. Barbed wire, padlocked doors and scattered garbage are what Athenians see these days at their multi-billion euro sports venues built two years ago for the 2004 Olympics. Picture taken Aug. 11, 2006.

Ghosts of Olympics past

Long after the fanfare, the venues of Olympics past remain. Some continue to be in use, others are left to ruin.
