sightseeing in London

This morning I went to visit the Royal Mews since we are staying just around the corner from Buckingham Palace. The mews houses all the state carriages and of course the Royal horses. Sadly there were no horses to be seen this morning but I took a few pictures - it was packed with tourists so quite hard to get a good view of the carriages.
This is where the carriages are stored when not in use -

and this is a replica of the real thing, very lifelike!

  9. Aren't those stalls wonderful! Your picture is perfect - it's lit beautifully. The second picture looks a little yellow. Most of the photos I take inside y house turn out yellowy so I adjust the temperature in Lightroom and that works very well. I had to do it with my Lunch II photograph yesterday.

  10. This is quite an elegant place for the horses, but of course, they're royal horses. I'm looking forward to seeing more of London through your lens!

  20. I guess I missed this post before Justine. I really like this...never seen it before. I always like to show these to my husband too as he knows more about London than I do.
