Back in the U.K. – Perry and the Policeman

This was taken right after the parade of the guards.  I saw an opportunity to take a totally unique photo and I went for it.  I kindly explained to the young officer what I was doing and he agreed to hold Perry for me for this shot.  Now if you notice, Perry has changed looks a bit since his first photo taken at the paella place.  He’s no longer Perry but secret agent, Agent P.  How did this happen?  I lost the first Perry while watching some barely clothed maniac on a unicycle juggle swords.  Perry fell out of my pocket and by the time I realized he was gone, he was gone!

I was so upset thinking the photo book was going to be about two pages long when I recalled there being a Disney store in Covent Garden.  I rushed off and asked the kid at the door did they carry these stuffies.  He pointed towards the back saying they did indeed carry them.  I almost hugged him and he did give me a “odd American” look.  But they only had Agent P’s.  No problem! I just wrote in the little guys photo book that Agent P had a mission in London and all was right with the project again – phew!!!

    I’m sorry, how did you not get a picture of the barely clothed maniac on a unicycle juggle swords? I could barely read past that.

  2. Ah – The officer is a good sport to pose like that. I think the London Bobbies do a good bit of PR.

  3. It’s funny.. Their police men look so much friendlier than ours over here in the states. Maybe its the uniforms??

    Great photo and what a good sport!! I love that I am reliving all of my London memories through your pictures (although perry wasn’t involved in mine…but he should have been!!) –Lisa

    Love it. Agent P in one hand and “Police Line” tape in the other. Looks like he’s ready to face a crowd of kids and prepared if they get unruly. 🙂
