and that doesn't even include London's primary Skyscraper district!

Because London's skyline encompasses so much more than scrapers

Soon the floor plates (if that's called like that) will start to be higher than the buildings around and this tower will finaly start to look like something

i love the way St Pauls has moved to the east of the London Eye, that Westminster Abbey has appeared in the middle of the City (in front of St Helens and the current 122 Leadenhall) It also appears that the Palace of Westminster has moved to the site of More London and is blocking out 20 Fenchurch Street.

I think something like this is totally misleading without an explanation wjfox! Whose been moving around buildings like chess pieces?

That area's looking extremely dense. Probably won't be a lot of light between this one and Lloyd's. So how much further up will the core go?

The buildings are in their correct location, just its taken further west than you would usually expect to see a skyline shot of London

Yeah its interesting how because of the way the river meanders you can get some really odd at first looking views of Westminster and the Square Mile.

About another 5 or 6 floors.

That's the Lloyds Building, probably Richard Roger's most famous building.

frick on a stick, you could be right. I've lived here for 5 years and by god, that foxed me for starters! You're right, you can see St Stephen's Tower (Big Ben) directly behind the two spires of Westminster Abbey with the eye behind and to the left. Correctamundo.

Apologies. Don't often see such a view, presume its a bigstyle zoom photo from the west/northwest!

Was just about to post my 51 Lime Street shots here but the wily fox has beaten me to it. That post count isn't a competition old fruit!
