For the first week of our stay the weather constantly changed. Cloudy, light rain showers, windy, and then sun - all within the span of 10 minutes. Some of my photos reflect this ever-changing phenomenon.
We did not bother with attempting to see the changing of the guard. Too long of a wait and too crowded. I'm also short, so I probably could not see it anyway. As it turned out we happened upon another version later in the week where we could see most of the action without the crowd (more on this in a later post).
And without further adieu, here are the good, cliched, and unusual shots of Buckingham Palace and the Victoria Memorial.
