Thank you for your help Ni3lS! The first two are fro the top of my flat in Whitechapel and the last is from a window at work, Waterloo. They were all taken before the latest latest rise of the core!

Wow that’s a great night shot. I can’t believe how much everything is lit up; on the webcams everything looks black as hell, "I do love a nice night shot". Would be good if you Londoners could take a night walk to take a few snaps. It's good to see the shard in a different light.

A quick tour round the site today...

Habitual pointer to my Shard Gallery.


Tooley Street/Duke Street Hill




London Bridge Street




The magic 25!




Level 2 works on Joiner Street






St Thomas Street: with the new levels the framework is genuinely becoming a building















From Druid Street, off to the east, the core is making itself known over the top of the railway viaduct

Great updates!

I noticed that crane is leaning. I know it is normal for crane to be little lean to around 2' at top part but below part isn't supposed to be leaned.

Nice photos from Tower Bridge cybertech I can't believe how fast this beauty is going up! And it's great to see the cladding arriving on site.
