Only a few, as I wanted to watch, not take photos!
(they're in reverse order for some reason, the elephant started in piccadilly at the bottom, then the girl woke up in the park, met up with the elephant and then they got her into the rocket for blast-off at the top.)

Not in fact a steal from http://rts.gn.apc.org but it means I'm not the only one who's noticed a certain diffuse cultural lineage... free tabloid, cars stitched to streets, moments like the jannequin pis snuck in, even some semblance to this:an artistic occupation of the streets, an invasion that brings the traffic to a standstill, disrupts the spectacle of everyday life, and puts culture right at the very heart of our capital city.
