It was a wonderful day in March, 2017. We’d walked Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens and emerged at the exit by the Albert Memorial and Royal Albert Hall. It was by then mid afternoon, cool and breezy. The air was clear, and the sky bright blue with cumulus clouds. So I took some photos of the Albert Memorial, by Goerge Gilbert Scott (1872; statue, by John Henry Foley, 1874).

I offer here a small gallery of images reflecting my idiosyncratic choices of views (sometimes in defiance of where the sun was) and my idiosyncratic choices of which of those to edit and present. My camera was an iPhone 6, which, looking back from the viewpoint of having used an X with a Moment lens for some time now, was pretty meh.
