Theme Day - Men at Work



Today's theme is "Men at Work", so I thought to show you a quintessentially London scene of men at work. You can see the Household Cavalry on guard in Whitehall every day. They stand, seemingly without moving, despite all the antics of the tourists to distract them - especially in summer.

The regiment's history dates back to the 17th century, and they are the most prestigous part of the British Army. Famous Guards include James Blunt, Harry & Wills Wales.

62 Daily Photo sites are participating in the 1st March theme, "Men at work", please use the links to below to visit them.

Yes, I was one of those silly tourists trying to distract them.

Santy, I suspect they are very proud of their job.

Are there any non-silly tourists where these guys are concerned???? (me too!)

Great you could show something location specific.

 

Blogger lynn said ... (09:07) : 

Wonderful traditional spot. Quite brings a patriotic lump to my throat, not least in sorrow for my own silly antics as a child jumping up and down in front of them pulling faces with an equally silly friend on a school trip. I'm now truly sorry lads. Eek. lol.

I've never figured out how they manage to remain so stiff--maybe the're hypnotized or borgs, ya think?

Good photo choice!

 

Anonymous Helen said ... (03:17) : 

Their training for such a job must be intense!

 

Anonymous Lachezar said ... (08:33) : 

The job's got to be done...

Great choice!

 

Anonymous lizzy said ... (22:40) : 

As someone who knows a lot of these black horses, I'm not sure how they stand still for so long either!!!!!

 

Blogger The Wellspring said ... (17:44) :
