I ♥ elephants.
And last year there were hundreds of them all over London!
That is, acrylic ones. They were errected throughout the city, to raise awareness of the growing threat of extintion these wonderful mammals face. When the 260 strong herd was autioned off, at the end of the summer, an amazing 4.1 million pounds was raised. Hardly peanuts, is it?!
But before they were sold, Londoners and tourists were able to see the beautifully decorated creatures all around town. Right across the city, from Bayswater to Greenwich, there was an elephant to be seen.
And here are some of my favourite shots from last summer's Elephant Parade...
