This is a mural that forms part of the decoration at the Youth Olympic Park. I was hesitating about including it, but clearly it is meant to last as long as the park. There are other elements to include, but I had a decent photo of the "photolandscape" mural. Artist not credited, though the individual photographers are credited in a label attached to the work.

Text of the Label:

These photos, contributed by a group of young volunteer photographers, capture the inspiring and memorable moments experienced by the athletes. Made possible with sponsorship from Deloitte.
