Photo for Today - Thutmosis III obelisk, London

I'm back in Wales which means that I'm short of photos again.

Here's another expatriate obelisk, this time in London on the Victoria Emankment
overlooking the River Thames.

Known locally as "Cleopatra's Needle" it was actually erected by Tuthmosis III in Helipopolis.
