Horse Guards   Leave a comment

We stumbled upon this bit of ceremony at the Horse Guards Parade Ground on the day that Diana died.  It was eerily quiet in London that day.  No car horns.  No shouting or laughing.  As we waited for the changing of the Horse Guards, the horse on the right was acting up.  The soldier in charge (standing) was telling the horse’s rider — in no uncertain terms — to get his horse under control.

I’ve always liked this photo for the symmetry and the color, but it will always conjure up the memory of that sad day.
