At first I wasn’t going to go line up in order to see the changing of the guard and truth be told, I didn’t. As it turned out we were wandering around the area, got caught up in a protest march (I got tangled up in the middle of a bunch of folks protesting immigration laws; I was just trying to cross the street), and ended up strolling through the beauty that is St. James’ park when there it was! Buckingham Palace, a bunch of folks surrounding it, and the guard doing their thing.
What the hey! So off I went and jockeyed for position to get some shots. Me and a “few” other tourists. It was quite fun seeing them doing their parade march – I think some dignitary from the US was scheduled to arrive the next week – so I got to see the guard after all and in a way I hadn’t anticipated.
