London plays host to two very different parades…


FLICKR photographer Gerry Popplestone had fun in London yesterday. One minute he’s taking pictures of naked cyclists in a mass protest against dependency on the oil industry and five minutes later he captures the Orange Order in a march to commemorate the 200th birthday of the Grand Orange Lodge of England. Reports of Sammy Wilson riding through Hyde Park wearing only a sash and bowler hat remain unconfirmed, but I’m sure the tourists were amused by the culture clash of naturism and loyalism.
