    Great composition, John. Pretty fancy uniforms. Did you sneak this shot or aren't they nervous about pictures being taken?

Thanks. They don't mind the photos, as long as you don't get too close. If you take the first step up towards them, they slam their rifle stocks onto the ground, and it has a really loud echo, sure to scare you back to your place. They "change guard" hourly.

Great pic. I actually got to stand next to the guard and had my photo taken.
