That last photo makes it look bloody HUGE! If I didn't know any better, I wouldn't even guess that that's London.

There are always new angles from places away from central London, so sometimes it does look a different city in different pics.

Well, the Thames is right there and considering all the modern blocks, you are probably right.

Super Shard Surges Skywards

The London skyline has a new skyscraper on the South Bank, as Renzo Piano's Shard starts to take shape...

or the thousands of visitors and workers who come to London Bridge each day, north of the river has long been the direction to look for architectural inspiration with St Pauls, the Lloyds Building, Tower 42 and more recently, the Gherkin all providing recognisable shapes on the London skyline.

But this is changing very quickly. All of a sudden, people have started to take notice of what is going on at the Shard, being built on a busy site right next to London Bridge station. With the construction site largely obscured from passers-by, the initial phase of work passed by largely un-noticed.

Of late however, the Shard has start to cut a mightily impressive figure from any number of vantage points, as it's central shaft climbs ever skyward, seemingly dragging the huge base of the building up behind it.

As tall as it is now, it's barely even half the height it will be when finished, at which point its 87 floors will literally tower over everything else in the city.
