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.  
(Canon DSLR and 85mm F1.8)


  1. That is an interesting viewpoint ... I think 99.9% of the time I would shoot that vertically and yet this is pleasing to the eye and I like how the statue and the guard are off set, you got good lines and shadow . Good shot CC

  2. I like this viewpoint. It gives the impression of moving through the gates and arch with the guards themselves.
