Buckingham Palace

Shot with Olympus E520
Let's start the week with a tourist shot - there can be few views that scream "London" as loudly as this. What's more, it makes a pretty picture.

There's been increasing controversy recently about the bearskins (the hat) which are made out of real bear. Moves to replace them with synthetic versions have been unsuccessful thus far. PETA staged several naked demonstrations to highlight the cause.

Although they are best known as worn by the Guard's Regiments, it turns out that eight other countries also use them, including the USA.
