Stunning video there. Gives the toucher a sense of majesty.

Well, I took advantage of the good weather today to get some pics in (Paris doesn't seem to have been so lucky from my reading of French news). And this time I remembered to take my circular polariser...

There are about forty more photos from today (and about 2,700 others from the last fifteen months or so) in my Shard Gallery.


Queen Elizabeth Street providing its customary useful spot to observe the whole tower.




The eastern side from the junction of Bermondsey Street and St Thomas Street






A lucky catch with a BA airliner




Progress on the backpack (no glazing yet, that I could see)






Moving west along St Thomas Street...








to the courtyard of Guy's Hospital







Southwark Street




Nice light on the glazing on the SW corner from the bus station




NW corner from Duke Street Hill

Hey guys, watched the channel 4 news section; thought you might want to listen to the Today programme on radio 4 as well. Towards the end (last half hour or so) there's a section on the shard and one of our favourite idiots talking it down!
