Peace and Love


I took both these photographs on a trip up to central London this summer. They sort of seemed to go together. 

In the first the street artists were letting tourists help draw their own country's flag, and then there was a sort of competition to see which nation would have the most coins.
 
This statue of Nelson Mandela is at the Southbank Centre.

  1. I love the chalked flags, what a fun thing to do. I'm not sure that is a great likeness of Nelson Mandela.

  6. The chalk flags are great, and I rather like the Nelson Mandela bust. Hoping to get to London for a day next week to see my daughter, and I'm so excited I don't know where I want to go! My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/O2D5sX

  12. The flag drawings are pretty uniform for having been done by many. I wonder which one won.
    Mandala fits in perfectly.

  16. I love sidewalk chalk art, and this sample was a lovely idea. You are right, the photo goes well with the tribute to Mandela (one of my most admired people).
