Comment of the week:
On the Elephant Parade in Pictures, there's something of a race begun to capture all 260 eles:
Other than the astounding city in an Elephant one at City Hall/More London, my favourite so far is the Hornbill (http://www.flickr.com/photos/asw909/4584531925/), which seems to sum up the whole wonderfully loopy concept brilliantly.
(I've challenged myself to get all 260 or so while they are on display. 25 in the first few days is a good start, although if anyone can enlighten me on the location of the one near the Gherkin, I'd love to hear from you!)
Good luck Adam Williams!
