All pictures taken: Southbank, London.
Date: May 5, 2010.
Camera: BlackBerry Curve 8900.
Six hours' sleep and I wake up to find they were STILL counting votes after yesterday's election and we were no closer to finding out who was likely to form a majority government. By the time I got to work, the BBC was reporting it was likely to be a hung parliament. The hours ticked by. Nick Clegg said it was up to David Cameron to form a Government. Gordon Brown said it was up to Nick Clegg and David Cameron to enter into discussions. David Cameron invited Nick Clegg to come talk to him. Yep. This is going to drag on for days... if not weeks. Meanwhile, we all go down the gurgler.
To distract myself, I thought I'd post these cute elephants I photographed on the Southbank, enroute to my book group meeting, on Wednesday night. Aren't they adorable?
Apparently there are 250 of these statues dotted all over central London, including Green Park and Trafalgar Square, as part of an awareness campaign to save the endangered Asian elephant. They've all got names and can be "adopted" for a fee. Fantastic!
UPDATE: @mardixon just pointed me in the direction of this delightful picture gallery.
