Same.
I will wait for a clear blue sky in the summer (green trees look better) and then show up on the day and buy a ticket. I'm thinking August time, the Leadenhall Building and 20FC will be externally complete or almost externally complete by then.

One day in the future I will book a night in the hotel, and spend hours in the infinity pool

The shard was literally disappearing into the sky yesterday it looked incredible. Anyone manage to grab some decent shots of it?

I was traveling back to Newcastle and saw that too coming into Waterloo. Looked very cool with the clouds around the top.

I saw it too as well, it was very good. This maybe the Shard's first major appearance in popular culture.

It is if you want it complete. While under construction, the Shard has had a fair share of show time, like The Apprentice.
