Tide's out, the Thames is very tidal

Anyway, trust Cybertect to take great photos even on his iPhone!

Brilliant pics by marcus too... I love the Thames foreshore in The City... thousands of years of moorings and stumps, so much history...

Some 'proper' photos from today, taken with my 'proper' camera.

Usual mention that there are other pics from today posted in my Shard Gallery.


General view from Queen Elizabeth Street, to the east of the site




A bit closer, from the eastern end of St Thomas Street




Shard Holding Area






a little further up St Thomas Street, at the junction with Weston Street




Backpack glazing proceeds apace



with a detail of the (nicely handled) corner




The structure by Gate 3 I noted last week seems to have acquired a Christo wrap




From the courtyard of Guy's Hospital




Western end of St Thomas Street




The second layer of glazing close to ground level on Joiner Street, by the bus station.

Absolutely. I’ve seen allot of visualisations that look very convincing on paper but when it comes down to it, the overall outcome is disappointing to say the least. I think we all knew that the Shard would prevail. The quality of materials has not been compromised, and that says allot.

The Shard is one of the most trending topics on twitter right now. Apparently a fox climbed up the stairwell and was found on the 72nd floor. LOL
