Random Fridays: Memorial

Albert Memorial

Eye catching, isn’t he?

This is the Albert Memorial in London’s Kensington Gardens. It was commissioned by Queen Victoria in memory of her husband Prince Albert, who died in 1861 aged only 42. As you can see, it was a gloomy English summer day when I took these photos, and Albert’s extensive gilding was by far the brightest thing around. I was attending two Proms at the Royal Albert Hall (just across the road) that day.
