The Olympic flame has been the backdrop for numerous tourist photos during the Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
The most talented of photographers can walk by the same scene over and over and manage to see something new each time. That's what happened with Associated Press photographer David Goldman, who has spent the past three weeks ranging around the Olympic city of Sochi making pictures.
No skis, no skates, no torches or medals. This is the Sochi you may not see too often on television.
Picture this scene: Friday night, just before the opening ceremony of the Sochi Olympics, in what's called the "presidential lounge" of Fisht Stadium. In the hospitality industry, that phrase "presidential" is often thrown around with very little meaning.

Sixteen months after 9-year-old Sean Goldman was led through a crush of journalists and onlookers on a Rio de Janeiro street to be handed over to his father - completing a five-year ordeal that sparked tension in U.S.-Brazil diplomacy - he has a new life as a fifth-grader and youth baseball player in New Jersey.
A New Jersey man whose 5-year custody battle for his son became international news has a book coming out next year.
"I've walked by the torch 100 times and I only noticed that today - the drops of water on the edge of the pool under the cauldron," says Goldman.
In an interview, Mr. Goldman said ex-spouses enjoy "home court advantage" in the nations they flee to by spinning tales of abuse and taking advantage of cross-border views on divorce and child custody.
