Buckingham Palace

Shot with Olympus E510
I don't often do the tourist shots, so I thought I ought to fix that. Here's one of the most common sites in London, Buckingham Palace. Hang on a moment - where have all the crowds gone?

Well, lonf shadows and Exif info suggest that 7:20 am might be enough to dissuade the crowds. It does look a bit strange with nothing at all in front of it though.....

Hmm. Don't know where they all are. Maybe their recent complaints about being photographed has caused everyone to think well okay then we'll leave you alone.

Nice early morning light.

How did you find such a perfect morning in london???? I was just there a couple of weeks ago (august) and there were no guards then either - around 7am...
I feel like I've been gone forever. I'm going to have to spend an hour going through all the pictures I missed!

Yes, 7 a.m. is a good time to find nobody, 'tis true.

and the traffic? last time i was there, it took about 10 minutes to cross the roads to get to the main gate.

A lot of light for 7 AM. Is this from a few weeks back? My other thoughts were the tourists are visiting the Terra Cotta Soldiers, and the locals are watching the Rugby on the telly. Take that, you cheese-eating surrender monkeys!. (With acknowledgements to Groundskeeper Willy.)

It is indeed from a few weeks ago, and should be the last of my early morning photos for a while.

I waited outside the Palace for 3 hours in the hot sun one summer waiting for the changing of the guard. Here's to being an over zealous tourist.
