Hello! My name is Lindsay Morris and I’m a Photo Research Editor at Getty Images.  I won the internal  Getty Images  Olympic video contest and the prize is getting to work with the Getty Images team at the Olympics for a week in Vancouver!  I have always loved the Olympics, especially the Winter Olympics, and I feel so incredibly lucky to be here.

I left from New York City on Monday night and my flight to Vancouver was great – I got the coveted window seat with an empty middle seat next to me (score!) and landed a little before 1am– wide awake.  I knew it was going to be a good trip when I got into the taxi and ‘Bad Romance’ by Lady Gaga started playing (shout out to my girls “rah- rah ah-ah-ah”) .  I checked into my hotel room – which is bigger than my apt, (seriously…) and knew I should sleep but I couldn’t.  I could hear the bustle of fans still cheering in the streets and I was so excited to jump right in.

This morning I got my credentials (which are almost as good as gold here) and headed into the Getty Images office in the Vancouver Convention Centre.  Everyone has been so good to me – so good, that tonight I get to go see the figure skating pairs free program!  As a childhood figure skater this is a dream come true.  I will be blogging throughout my week here and I want to say a special hello to the “Research Village” from the Olympic Village- I miss you guys!
