City Daily Photo Theme Day: St. George's Day

Kenilworth Castle celebrations, England, April 2012. Trying a collage to capture St. George's Day. For local flavor, below is a Princeton dormitory's St. George, by A. Sterling Calder (father of Alexander). More theme entries here!
***
On a personal note, with regard to English connections, the name "LondonLulu" was a little tribute to our pre-Princeton roots in London, England and Honolulu, Hawaii.

I wondered if there would be a Kenilworth link today, Lulu. See I am paying attention :). Super collage and couldn't help notice that Alexander Calder lived in Pasadena for a time. Neat. Happy St. George's Day.
