Is that QR code going to actually be on the building or is it just a rendering easter egg?

I wouldn't be surprised if it's included as a design quirk.

Canary Wharf station is unbelievable. It looks JUST like the renders! Amazing architecture, design, and craftmanship.

The docklands in general will be an architectual masterpiece... all of these updates just go to show how amazing the area will look.

Fanastic updates as usual SE9.

I don't think I've ever seen anything like the Garden Bridge. Very cool.

Is there a deadline to be met for all funds to be raised by, that will determine if the garden bridge gets built or not ?.

Project facts
  • Artist: Paul Cummins
  • Ceramic poppies: 888,246
  • Completion date: Armistice Day (11 November 2014)

A project of a different type that has taken shape over the past few months in London. Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red is an art installation at the Tower of London, commemorating the First World War. The installation features 888,246 poppies at the Tower's moat, one for each British soldier killed in the war:

- BBC News: Tower of London poppies attract crowds

- Huffington Post: Tower Of London Poppies: Stunning Before And After Pictures

- Financial Times: Tower of London poppies take UK into new age of war commemoration

A simply astonishing memorial. One can only hope it remains in place for a while, if not becomes a permanent fixture. It's simplicity is matched only by its meaning.

Even if the Garden Bridge wasn't a garden, and just had tarmac on top, it would still be amazing. The leafed design of the arches is magnificent. It's a triumph of design and intention. Love it. Really, really want it to be built.

I'm a little confused as to why my photo is being used here without my permission...

Although I'm quite pleased to see that someone likes my photo enough to repost it on a different web site, on the other hand I'm a little confused as to why it's here....
[QUOTE=SE9;118780701]Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red | Tower of London EC3
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...ostcount=11756
...without "SE9" having asked my permission to use the image! Especially as he/she is a Flickr member and should be fully aware of what "All Rights Reserved" means when added to a photo. It's clearly added as a footer at the bottom of the page that is linked to my photo.

I suppose the only mitigating fact is that he/she has at least had the decency to add a link to my Flickr ID. Like I say, in some respects I think this does mitigate this use (especially as I'm just an amateur photographer). But that said, I think "SE9" needs to have the words "All Rights Reserved" explained to him/her again.

Maybe this link will explain in full...
https://www.flickr.com/help/general/#147

Or perhaps looking at this forum's own rules that clearly state "Users are not allowed to post copyrighted material..."
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/announ...php?f=12&a=802

The really funny thing is that had "SE9" asked permission, I would probably have not had any real issues with them using the photo. In my case I see it as a common courtesy though to ask the owner for permission. As he/she has miss-used my photo, then maybe they are infringing on someone else's livelihood as a professional photographer? In that case that's a totally different matter.

I would look forward to a proper request to use my photo, or indeed a discussion on why I feel this way about its use.

Regards,
Steve B
