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!!!
