Horse (and guard) on parade

August 31, 2011

She doesn’t make it easy, does she that Tara Cain? She said she wanted us to go out and photograph animals (not just cats and dogs) so yesterday during my lunchtime I traipsed over to St James’s Park looking for animals to photograph (and not just birds – there are a lot of birds in St James’s Park).

And then inspiration struck. I raced over to Horseguards Parade and got some a snap of this handsome chap (I mean the HORSE, *cough*).

Mission accomplished.

    What a stunning creature. Something so elegant and regal about horses, especially dark ones.
