the elephant stands

On Friday, I went to see The Sultan's Elephant. Pictures can in no way tell you what it's really like to stand next to a 40 foot high mechanical elephant, but click on the image to see the rest of mine on flickr!
Truly, an amazing thing. When I arrived, the elephant was in Horse Guards Parade, and part of Whitehall was closed to traffic. As I went in, I passed a man asking as to why. It's not every day you get to hear a policeman say "They've got a 40 ton elephant in there."
I also highly recommend Pat Cadigan's photo sets for more. She's got some fantastic pictures up.
