Photo Essay: The surroundings of the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace

There’s this fascinating touristy event happening in London called as the Changing of the Guard. The Queen’s house is the Buckingham Palace and she needs a fair few soldiers to guard her. But a soldier cannot live by guarding alone, so you need to rotate them regularly. Hence Changing of the Guard. You can click on the link to see good photographs and a bit of a background to this fascinating exercise, but i wanted to see people taking in this event. So I took some photos and down to the Serpentine. Mainly trying to figure out what the hell does “making a difference” mean in terms of a photography competition which the firm is running. Here’s the full slideshow.
