Best Viewed LARGE on Black: The Doorman at the Ritz. The well worn phrase "if you have to ask the price, you probably can't afford it" comes to mind. Just to see what would happen, I popped in acting as though I belonged in the lobby of the Ritz that morning. I was immediately approached by two of the most haughty and supercilious employees you can imagine. One of them asked: "Sir, are you a guest at the hotel?" I replied: "No, but I've heard that one can get an excellent breakfast in your restaurant." The other looked down his nose and said: "Ah, well, Sir, I'm afraid we have a dress code for non-guests." I was wearing decent pants and a sports coat, but I guess my well worn walking shoes and the aging Jansport day pack filled with the sandwiches and fruit and other supplies I had packed for the day gave me away so I left peacefully and slightly amused - there was certainly no "dress code" posted at the door or anywhere else . I'm sure even their most modest breakfast would have broken my budget for the entire week anyway. If you click on the set to the right and run the Slideshow in Full Screen Mode, you can follow me through the rest of the Bank Holiday as I did some window shopping in Mayfair and Piccadilly, caught the Matisse Textile Exhibition at the Royal Academy, took a tour of Westminster Abbey, and then walked down the Thames Embankment and across the river to the South Bank Center for an evening of Shakespeare at the National Theater. As Dr Samuel Johnson said, if one is tired of London, he is tired of life itself...... PS: As I told Dysartian below, - I never thought the Doorman would be found in EXPLORE rubbing shoulders with the Flickr royalty - the macro closeups of bees and butterflies on flowers, the naked pregnant ladies, etc. - I wish I had his e-mail address so I could let him know he's finally arrived (LOL)!!!
