Popped down to the site with my camera at lunchtime...

Usual plug for my Shard Gallery where there are some more photos from today that I've not posted here.


St Thomas Street/Bermondsey Street




Gate 3 - the secondary core is moving up real fast








The glazing on St Thomas Street above Gate 1



with the corner turning



apparently, it needs to be kept clean already





World Cup fever has hit the Shard - surprised there's not an Italy flag too




Safety nets on Joiner Street make a nice picture




Level 2 concrete on Joiner Street has been cast




View from the other side of the bus station




So, after all that, I took a trip up Guy's tower and had a look down







and also a look that wasn't down

I don't get much opportunity to go to London - about once a month - so keep up the good work everybody!

ps - I had to balance the camera on a railing and do a 3 second self-timer to get the image sharp for the 1 second exposure - on those above two. I really like how St Pauls came out - looked stunning!

Looks like they are going fast with the flooring. How many floors per week?

It's clearly visible from Clapham Junction train station now (8 miles or so west of central london) Ok, you need good eyes, or a powerful zoom - but the black climber section makes it stand out quite obviously from everything else on a clear day...
This is 2 photos I took Wednesday evening - the one on the left is a zoom (18x or so) of a portion near the centre of the image on the right.
Maybe, before the year is out it will be taller than Canary Wharf?
Camera: Panasonic FZ28

Wow, 12 floors of steels now... the floors are rising real fast now. The glazing is also coming along well. Good to see there's not delays in that like they had on the Burj Dubai - on that the glazing was about 70-100 floors behind the core. Here it looks like everything is running well.

Perhaps you could elaborate? What part of the project is tacky? To me it look a perfectly sophisticated addition to the skyline.

I think its obvious his English isnt perfect, hes saying he thinks the Shard is an excellent project but it shows how bad some other developments have been. kind of an uneducated view IMO but there is no denying there are some contravesial tall buildings in london.
