OH, wow! I didn't see this thread about 2 weeks because of busy time and I am suprised about this I have my old (2 weeks old) photos and now they're not actually (never mind), but when I look at these ones, there's some nice feeling. Now I can admire this nice skyscraper and I know I'll be back there in some time. GO ON!

Can definitely see the smaller core inside the semi-translucent formwork now.

There's no way this can go unnoticed to tourists and non-skyscraper Londoners by know.

Thanks chest.

A few pics from yesterday, together with the usual note that there are more in my Shard Gallery


The statue of former Mayor of Bermondsey, Samuel Bourne Bevington, contemplates the Shard from Queen Elizabeth Street.




On Crucifix Lane, with the signal box for London Bridge Station




Fisheye lens out for a view of the hoist platform on St Thomas Street



and the south west corner




I noticed some services piping on the ground floor by Gate 1




We're starting to get a real feel for how the glazing is going to look when it's complete...

St Thomas Street






London Bridge Street
