Raise the Flag Wembly

Yesterday i took photos of and helped lay out the Giant saint George's cross (raise the flag) for the England V Holland match at Wembley stadium. i tried to shoot the whole things as a little photo story telling the story of how it all gets put together. This was a sweet job. Here the pictures:
 "Close up of one of the box's full of all the coloured pieces of card that make up the giant cross, each piece we put on a chair was a folded up version of the one in the picture, either red or white."
 "Box's fell on the floor as they were loaded to be taken into the stadium" 
 "Romanian Girl waiting for the rest of the box's"
 "Planning out the cross and where to put each colour"
