London's Elephants - No. 20 in a series

Shot with Olympus E510
It's elephant time again, strange but although they aren't native to this country they seem to do well here - there are still more waiting in the wings. You'll find this one in Rasa, an Indian Restaurant in Derring Street, just opposite yesterday's building. I've not tried eating there, but it looks OK, as far as you can judge these from the outside. And of course, they have an elephant.

London's Elephants - No. 19 in a series

Shot with Olympus E510
The idea behind "Trunks Meet Trunks" in Hyde Park is to make you stop and consider the importance of wildlife corridors. The beauty is, there is not just one elephant here, but a whole herd.

These beasts are truly compelling, and they will only be here until the 18th, I would throughly recommend a visit. If you can't get there, here are a range of pachyderm connected activities you can do wherever you are.

Thanks to Dianne for bringing these to my attention.

London's Elephants - No. 18 in a series

Shot with Olympus E500
The Trafalgar Square festival this year sets out to express London’s creative connections with India, with a range of dance, music and performance. Today, they were painting a poster and these elephants appeared.

Last day Sunday, if you want to get down there. Lots of photos here or here.

London's Elephants - No 17 in the series

Shot with Olympus E500
Today's elephants come from Northfield Nursery in Sewardstone, Chingford. Not quite up to the standard of No. 7, but still adequate pachyderm quotient.

London's Elephants - No 16 in a series

It's a pachyderm moment one more time! This one is on Allington House in Victoria. It was created by Barry Baldwin, and here he is in the creative process. I have no idea why it's on this building.

London's Elephants - No.15 in a series

"I'm just popping out for a curry!" is what this elephant seems to be saying. It's one of a pair outside the Curry Palace restaurant, Queensway. I confess I wasn't about to sample their cuisine, but I do like their taste in elephants.

Who would have thought this series has been running for over a year already.

London's Elephants - No. 14 in a series

Nobody guessed, it's elephant time again. I particularly like this one because it was a visitor to London that brought it to my attention. I had The Adelphi down to visit sometime, and knew of the friezes, but I knew nothing of the elephants. You can find them right around the building.

London's Elephants - No 13 in a series

The latest in the series is in Notting Hill Gate and is title is "Carnival Elephant".

Interestingly, an intrepid scout from the U.S. of A. on a trip to London has found me another elephant that I didn't know will be along next time.
