I've never really seen any modern-day pictures of London looking like that. Stunning.

Now Shard is so big, Guy's Hospital looks less significant.

I guess almost everything we had in Europe so far would've looked less significant next to such a skyscraper . And if Guy's Hospital looked at least decent to me at the beginning, it now seems to get progressively uglier as the Shard's construction goes ahead

Amazing picture! Took me a few secs to notice the top of the core in the clouds/myst! Looks even higher this way. Like a huge sc-fi 500 meter structure looming in the clouds.

Not that I'm particularly fond of Dubai's construction but it does look like a Dubai skyscraper in the midst of a sandstorm.
