28 Photos Later: Day 6 in London

Welcome to Day 6 of “28 Photos Later”.


Today is the 63rd anniversary of Queen Elizabeth the Second’s accession to the throne, so I looked for a royal photo.  You can see the Royal Rowbarge, Gloriana, if you look carefully, behind Florentijn Hofman’s HippopoThames.

Hippo & Gloriana

HippopoThames swam away from the Thames at the end of 2014.  Does anyone know where it is now?

    Oh alas for earthly sovereignty! On Fiji’s one dollar coin Her Majesty the Queen was replaced by a lizard, and in the heart of her realm, her royal boat plays second fiddle to a gigantic toy hippo.

    I have to say I saw this coming. When I was a child “king-sized” was the biggest box of soap powder. A little later “giant-size” was larger than :king-size.”: Twenty or thirty years ago, “economy size” was way bigger than “giant size” and “king size” is now a small looking box.

      I was interested to see the Fiji coins on your Baha’i blog. And now I’ve heard that the Fiji flag is changing too. Hope you’re entering a design into the flag competition.
