Nice building. Those pics with the "Castle" and the skyscrapers just make me feel jealousy of London.

Some pics from today. I'm addicted to this building right now. I just feel compelled to photograph it.

Strange facade-shape. If I'm not mistaken, one side of the zig-zag plate will be glass-window claded and another will be aluminum cladding right?

Last pic by Will is excellent. I have to admit, there's something about Bishopsgate I really like.

Highrise. Try hosting your images on a website such as
http://************/

or

http://www.imageshack.us

They will give you an address (it will most proabably have [IMG] on it). Add it to your post and the pictures should come up.

Good luck

That's a great pic, I've always tried to picture what it will look like from that angle (near the GLC, where I normally visit and have an ice-cream, lol). The tower will be fantastic
