Steve: with regard to "where are the horses" the temperature when I took the pics was up in the 90's, so the horses were not out, but the guards were, in their full uniform! (tin helmets and all! phew!) However both of them were under the arch you can see in the middle of the building. As for your monument artifying, I don't think that would offend anyone, it's "very tastefully" and well done.....John

I was being a bit facetious. My wife and I were in London a few years ago and I remember the Queen's Horse Guards. I seem to remember the building being more in the city. Could be they have moved or that there is more than one...don't remember.

Thank you for the gracious words re. the memorial. And thank you for posting the picture. I did not know about it. It really is a striking tribute to some oft forgotten ladies.

Steve: this is a view of the back of horse guards, if you walk thru' the archway you are on Whitehall just across from Downing Street. (is that central enough? ). That memorial is just up the road from that, and yes it's a striking piece of work......John

Ok, now I get it, we're looking at it from the rear. That make it a bit clearer.

I remember the riders clopping down a busy street and turning into an arched doorway. So now I get it. Didn't see this side of it when we were there.

Thanks.

Steve

never used this filter before. it's called '3,5 promille'. dont ask me what it means; the filter is in a language other than english. kind of interesting and part of a series.

"Change of Seasons"

i seem to be on a weather kick and being that it's coming into august, this wont be that far off

VDL Adrenaline's "Snowflakes" and "Snowscape"

the snowscape one didnt quite work well enough so the ground snow is all mine. the parts on the building are from snowscape.
