Queen's Market Butcher....

An afternoon at Queen's market a few weeks ago 
offered many opportunities for photos of butchers.  
Today's post includes my two favorite butcher images 
from Queen's market...

Year of the Dragon...

These two images were captured while attending the 2012 Chinese New Year's 
celebrations earlier this year.    I like how both the man and the little girl are looking up...  
the little girl is having fun with her dragon on a stick -- not sure what the man
is looking up at but something got his attention.

Faces on the Street...
Once again the street cleaners of London have caught my eye.  
Saw this guy a few weeks ago and loved his look.  It was a bonus 
when he walked by the two faces on the building seen here.
His expression just seemed to fit well with the "faces" in the background 
and, as usual, I'm drawn to the pop of color presented by his coat.

On Guard...
Horse Guards Parade always presents photo ops -- both the guards and 
the people visiting.   This image offers a different perspective on the mounted guard 
than my more common shot from the front.  I liked the lines, arch, and 
silhouetted mounted guard with the standing statue in the background -- a composition 
I hadn't considered when visiting on numerous occasions in the past.

Erin go Bragh...

Happy belated St. Paddy's Day!   
The above images were captured at the Trafalgar Square St. Paddy's Day celebrations on Sunday, 18 March.  I'm unsure why London has there parade and celebrations the day after St. Paddy's day however this year it played into their favor.  The weather was much better on Sunday for those out celebrating.   This image is by far my favorite of the day containing all the essential elements....  
Green and Guiness and happy people to top it off!

Afternoon stroll....

This photo was taken a month or so ago while sitting at a sidewalk cafe.  
The friendly couple pictured had stopped for a coffee and a chat at a sidewalk cafe 
before heading off down the street.  Great style and beauty.

February 2012 - GRD-IV Images

Bangkok days....
A final post of images taken with the GRD-IV in Bangkok to close out the February postings.  
As you can tell the first and last images have been edited slightly and a vignette added 
(not from the built-in GRD vignette).  The people of Thailand are so kind and friendly.  
Not one person reacted to having their picture taken in a negative way.  In fact, most of the time 
they would give a big smile if the camera was turned toward them.  It had been over 20 years 
since I was last in Bangkok.  I hope it doesn't take another 20 years for me to get back 
to Thailand again.  If you get the chance to go... go for it!
