a highly photogenic day

i spent nearly all of yesterday in the house of commons. it was quite amazing and there were so many photo opportunities. fantastic architecture, mad signage, crazy traditions, bizarre conversations and lots of famous politicians (lord hutton held the door open for me at one point !)
security is really tight in there now and there are quite a few signs saying ‘no photography’.
so in the end i only sneaked this one, which is on the way up to the public gallery of the house of commons.
