April Theme Day - Red

Shot with Olympus E520
This month, the theme for the worldwide City Daily Photo theme day is "Red" - absolutely perfect for London: Red Buses, Red Phoneboxes, Red Postboxes spring immediately to mind. But I thought the number one red emblem for London is the scarlet of coats of the Guards at Buckingham Palace. This one is a Coldstream Guard - one of the oldest regiments - you can tell as he has a scarlet plume in his bearskin (and, buttons in pairs).

Excellent. My childhood in London comes tumbling back at the thought of the guards, the pillar boxes, the double deckers... ;-)
