Daily Prompt: Glitter

Glitter…? Um, no thanks, not for me. No sequins, or sparkles, or shimmery stuff, either. Without trying to put any gloss or shine on it, in all honesty, bling is just not my thing!

I think probably one of the most genuine blingiest things I’ve ever seen is the Gold State Coach, during a touristy visit to Buckingham Palace (which is open to visitors). The coach is absolutely huge (24ft long), stands much higher than you’d think (12ft high), and is apparently seriously heavy (4 tons). It is pulled at walking pace by eight grey horses, and has carried a wealth of history within its flamboyant finery, along with 250 years-worth of British Monarchs… and in this case at least, all that glitters really is gold…

Not the best picture in the world, taken with a basic point-and-shoot many years ago, but it’s definitely one of the glitteriest images I could think of for today’s prompt! 🙂
