Would all elephants who took the brown acid please come to the medical tent immediately

I've seen quite a lot of photos of London's recent elephant parade. There's even a couple of groups. I tend to leave this sort of thing to other people but I couldn't resist this psychedelic chap in New Bond Street.

 

Here's a more traditional view of him.

    Crazy ! I'm off to London soon, I'm going to have to track a few of these down.

    Very psychedelic indeed, but the title is particularly brilliant.

    A few years back the city of Vancouver in Canada did the same thing in which artists painted an array of orcas. My favorite was a white-suited, Vegas-era Elvis Orca. :-)

    Nice shot! Colourful and somehow that is also very LONDON,indeed, although I could never imagined I would think like this before I lived there. A gloomy grey sky was not everything of the city. :)

    While I also wondered why you did not take any of elephants!
    It is good to 'leave' that labour to other people, but I do think sometimes it is good to follow the trend from time to time. :)
    And who knows? If anyone who has a good talent takes that trendy shot, that could even better!

    It's more the case that I'm so busy most of the time, if something is happening over a short period like this it's often finished before I get the chance to photograph it and I end up disappointed.
    I like the sound of the Elvis Orca. Thangyouverymuch.

    Sad to hear that.
    If that is the case, hmmm...no choice. :(
    However hope you can find another chance in the future!

    lol@your caption...hilarious. we have that here too in chicago...each year it's a new theme depending on the city...from the parade of cows to carousel horses.
  • (deaf mute) 5y

    I got up really close with a 24mm lens for some pictures of the elephants, but none of my shots turned out as well as this. Very trippy!
