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!
Erm no its from the SouthWest. Richmond Park to be precise

The bend in the Thames is why it appears like that. But yeh, a pretty good zoom was used

That's awesome! This is the first rendering that I've seen that demonstrates exactly how this building will fit into the city. Thanks!
