Weekend in pictures

The weekend in pictures:

Friday:


Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace.


A very bold squirrel that came up to me during lunch in Regent’s Park.


An Asiatic lion in the London Zoo. Isn’t he beautiful?


A Kestrel named Solo and his keeper.
Kestrels are the only falcons that can hover in mid-air.

Saturday:

A day spent in Surrey watching the final instalment of the Harry Potter films and hanging out with friends.


A view from outside the pub we went to for drinks after the film.


An enormous glowing fox outside the Queen Elizabeth Hall.


I seem to have acquired the habit of walking across London bridges at midnight.

Sunday:


Three guesses where I went on Sunday…


Dr. Watson in the sitting room at the Sherlock Holmes Museum.

Sunday afternoon and evening were spent promming at the Royal Albert Hall. Over a thousand performers coming together for Brian’s ‘The Gothic’, the longest symphony yet written. The choir alone consisted of over 800 singers. The phrase ‘O for a thousand tongues to sing’ has entirely new meaning for me. It was epic.
