Weekly Photo Challenge: Blue

17 May

How lovely is it that the photo challenge topic this week is my favourite colour?  And how horrible is it that I don’t have a lot of photos with blue as the primary colour?!?  That is, until I opened my Elephants in London folder!

In the summer of 2010, a herd of colourful elephants appeared in London.  The elephant parade was done to raise awareness about the plight of Asian elephants.  People all over London were taking photos of the amazing elephants that took up residence in neighbourhoods and landmarks in the capital.

I thought I’d share the blue-coloured ones in honour of the theme for this week’s photo challenge!

    I remember these! We were in London that year for a week, and one day walking through Hyde Park we saw a row of them lined up like an honour guard. Thanks for the memory – these are great! 😉
