The Royal Horse Guard

"The Royal Horse Guard" depicts a close up of one of the horse men of the Royal Horse Guards in London. What fascinated me about this scene is the reflections in the horse guards armor. While he is is a member of this prestigious old establishment that reflects traditions and deeply rooted English history, he reflects modern London life in his shiny armor. I found this juxtaposition very interesting and took lots of photos until I got one that reflects a typical red double decker bus. What fascinated me was the calmness and composure of both rider and his horse as hundreds of tourists walked by them in awe and loaded with cameras. I was not the only one who found those two fascinating.
