Great shots! I glad that you were able to catch the little child in the frame. :)

I'm sure he's been photographed several millions of times. :) Good to see that he's looking as shiny as ever!

First, I was again impressed by your photography. But, being very ignorant about too many things, I had to look this up...

Prince Albert (I used to smoke his tobacco in my pipe! :-)) ... died at 42. Probably to get away from the queen. ;-)

This memorial, so beautiful, would cost about $10 million USD today, according to Wikipedia.

Sheesh!

That looks so familiar.... I wonder why! Ha...
I like the different animals used to represent each continent.
Eg Bison for America.

Nice framing of the memorial surrounded by the sky and the statue surrounded by the memorial...

I didn't realize it had so much gold and color. I missed seeing it by a short distance, and it was overcast that day. Nice to see the blue sky.

That child sure gives this place a sense of proportion!
