40-tonne mechanical elephant


I took this photo about two years ago, when the French mechanical marionette street theatre company Royal de Luxe came to London. It’s one of several pics from my photostream that have been favorited by other Flickr users.

    I have a similar photo – I took mine on Trafalgar Square, having followed the Elephant down from Piccadilly. It made quite a noise.

    That looks like a living, breathing Olyphunt from Lord of The Rings. Amazing.
