Elephant parade

Today I sent my husband on a mission.
It wasn't exactly difficult, and it wasn't unpleasant. I just wanted him to go out in his lunch hour and take photos. In fact I would have loved to be able to do it myself. But the inconvenient fact is that I work at a school in Hertfordshire and he works for a property developer in the City of London. And the things I wanted photographed are dotted around London at the moment. And they are unlikely to ever end up in our town. Several of them are nearby his office, along the embankment of the River Thames. Here they are, aren't they gorgeous?

It's all part of a programme to raise awareness of the plight of the endangered Asian elephant. You can read about it here and here and it's called the Elephant Parade.
Just thought you'd like a change from seeing my album pictures today!

I will never get tired of looking at your album pages, but these elephant photos are so much fun. Love the colors and the cause!
