Smiling Guard of the Clarence House, St James's Palace
Walking away from Buckingham Palace, I witnessed this guard in front of the Clarence House, the official residence of the Prince of Wales. As the guard spoked to 2 police officer's on horseback, he revealed his less serious side, cracking a smile. The guard's posture and carrying of such a gun provided perfect contrast, irony, and personality when attached to his beaming and candid smile, a much needed London face after the London Bridge attack.
