This is some detail from Ampersand by Luka Boonkerd Kaewdee who stands guard at the entrance to Hyde Park.  One of my favourite eles. Tweet This Post


Keeping an eye out…

Keeping an eye out…

I can’t quite decide if I like this photo or not.  I quite like the elephant (Mumbai Indians by Lalit Modi) looking down on the camera and then Nelson looking down on the elephant.  I’ve tried cropping a few different ways.  But I think this is the angle I prefer.   Having said that – I […]


The Green Park Parade

The Green Park Parade

Another successful elephant hunt this week – especially as the first eles I found were this happy herd in Green Park. This particular group was headed by Tara by Mark Shand – founder of Elephant Family.  Most (if not all) of the elephants in this parade have been sponsored by charities working in the field […]

In addition to raising awareness of the plight of the Asian Elephant many of the individual elephants are also either sponsored on behalf of other charities or asking us to think about different causes. This is Burma by Baccara Smart.  I don’t know if she is deliberately trying to highlight the human rights abuses in […]

The Elephant Parade

The Elephant Parade

All across London life-size baby elephant statues are popping up.  The Elephant Parade is raising awareness of plight of the Asian Elephant which is facing extinction due to threat to its habitat and human/elephant conflict. There are 258 elephants across London and I made a start the other day on visiting them all. It wasn’t […]
