254 elephants shot … only 4 to go

What seemed like an impossible task when I started back at the beginning of May is almost done with only four elephants still to be photographed. The remaining elephants are: Phoolan (66) who was missing from Natural History Museum on Sunday but is supposed to be back there now at the junction of Exhibition Road […]

The quest continues …

The quest for the Elephants continued on Saturday but now I need to plan my hunting more carefully to ensure that I am finding previously unseen/un-photographed elephants.  With this in mind, I decided to head off to the last large concentration of elephants … Covent Garden and its surrounding area.

The photos […]
