London Red


If you close your eyes and imagine you are standing in London, I'll bet there is something red in the scene you are picturing.  Red is a color that seems to dominate the streets.  Here we have two of those iconic red phone boxes pictured above.  Sadly, they are slowly disappearing but there are still plenty on the streets to see.


And of course, there are those wonderful double-decker buses.  You will see them everywhere all of the time.


And, let's not forget the wonderful royal guards in the snappy red coats and tall black hats.


The same goes for the royal band that marches out for the changing of the guard ceremony.


Over on Whitehall Place, you can find the Horse Guards on duty and in the winter months they don long red coats.


If you happen to be in London in November you will see plenty of red poppies for  Remembrance Day.  

Red is everywhere in this great city.

The red cloak on that horse guard is quite nice.

The similarities in terms of the ceremonial uniforms with our Guards strikes me, but then it comes from common roots.

That exactly London as I remember.

Love your red theme in these photos. I've always been fond of the British telephone booths and double decker busses. Great finds.
