London's Elephants - No 32 in a Series

Shot with Olympus E620
If you do go to the Victoria Miro gallery, you also have the opportunity to see NS Harsha's work, including this one, "In Musth". It has always amused me that a must (or musth) is the word for an elephant on heat. When I say "always", I mean each time I hear someone say "It's a must".

London's Elephants - No 31 in a Series

Shot with Olympus E520
Before London Daily Photo grinds to a halt, I had to bring you this elephant. Not the best photo - I had to sneak it and I've been trying since to get a better one - it is inside the Oriental Club in Stafford Place, just of Oxford Street. The African Indian Elephant is their emblem, and they have been a quintessential London institution since 1824, so it had to join the series. (thanks tot he Secretary of the Oriental Club for the correction!)

Stratford Place is a cul-de-sac, and you would not normally turn into it; you can see a view outside of the building here. The elephant is to the right as you go in.

London's Elephants - No 30 in a series

Shot with Olympus E520
When I wandered into the grounds of Kings College I was brought up short by a bizarre sight - a bike shed with these plaster plaques recovered from the original St Dunstan's House demolished in 1976. Well, they had to do something with them, didn't they?

London's Elephants - No 29 in a series

Shot with Olympus E520
The Horniman Museum has strong leanings to Natural History and, as we found out, to the odd walrus. I was pleased to learn that they didn't neglect the elephant, though.

The elephant series is here.

Today's elephant was spotted by the great Greenwich Phantom sitting high on what used to be Burton's building in central Greenwich. See the general view of the building here.

London's Elephants - No 27 in a Series

A pachyderm moment to round off the week, this is one of a pair supporting the columns in the facade of India House in the Aldwych.

It's been a while, but the elephants are on the move again. This stencil work is by OTP Collective, a bunch of artists and designers who get into tagging as well as the more interesting street art. Oh, and OTP stands for One Trick Pony.
