The fountain at Buckingham Palace

When I was in London a few weeks back, I hosted a photowalk and we had a great turnout.  It was such fun to meet so many new folks and I think that everyone really enjoyed it.  At one point during the photowalk we ended up at Buckingham Palace.  It was pretty funny to see all these tripod-wielding photographers descend on the place.

Out in front of Buckingham Palace is a large sculpture known as the Victoria Memorial.  It's something I think most people would recognize.  I had never actually paid close attention to it on previous visits, but this time I walked around it and focused on some of the details (pun sort of intended). 

These little fountains are on each side of it, and I am a fan of fountains anyways.  I also liked how the setting sunlight cast a nice glow on the bronze. 

It’s always interesting to see what you can discover when you are with your camera, and are deliberately trying to slow down and pay attention to things.
