Unusual sight in the Mall

Papalvisit 012

The other day, Anna Arco mentioned on Twitter that there were massive papal flags along the Mall, so I determined to get some photos. It was gloriously fresh and sunny morning first thing this morning in London so it was a great opportunity.

The above photo gives you a better impression of the length of the Mall. This zoom foreshortens this next one but you get some more of Buckingham Palace:

Looking the other way towards Admiralty Arch (through there you get to the South side of Trafalgar Square):

(Note for Americans: jay-walking is not prohibited in England.)

Another unusual sight in London is Methodist Central Hall decorated with the papal colours:

The Holy Father will drive in the popemobile past St James's Park. Looking across the park from Horse Guards, you wouldn't think you were in central London.
