  3. A great series of photos. I like your photo of the "changing of the guard". Very often that's the kind of view a tourist gets but its seldom seen in photos!

  13. A very dramatic sky to begin this week's selection. I love looking at other people's photos of London and working out where you were standing when you took the photo. I was probably quite close by on one or two of those days.

  33. Yes the palace has grand fences. I certainly would not want to stand guard in what has to be a hot uniform on a hot day. Got to admire those guards. Lovely journal entries. I like the one with the bunny.

  44. red phone booths are becoming harder and harder to find but then you end up finding them sometimes in the oddest places. like middle of nowhere, side of the road *shrugs*

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh, Carol...Your etegami is wonderful. How did you create your signature stamp. It is great. Your fish and the rabbit are so cute and the short saying are perfect. My little book arrive and I LOVE it. It may be small, but it is full of information. It was well worth the money and was here in about 3 days. I have gotten some new brushes, and am just gutting some watercolor paper to post card size. I am so excited about learning how to do it. Maybe this week I will see a bit of improvement. I also loved seeing the pictures from London, my magical home away from home. Oh, how I wish I could fly back. I am sitting here with all of these BA request flyer miles but my back just won't let me go, dog gone it. Hope you have a happy week. genie
