It's like in sports. All records become outdated but not the record holders.
A good point well made Brad

In your 1st picture the steel-concrete border is already very noticeable.

I like the angles which the last few photos above are taken from. But, the resolution of the iPhone is poor which make them look pretty dull.

Well, if you happen to have £1000 you could chuck my way, I might be able to carry one of these with me all the time more easily than my Canon 5D

Hey guys i found this article about a fox that lived in the shard im not sure if it was posted i dont go on this thread very much

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-12573364

Quote:
A fox has been discovered living at the top of the UK's tallest skyscraper.

The animal, named Romeo by staff, is thought to have entered the 288m (945ft) Shard building at London Bridge through the central stairwell.

It survived by eating scraps of food left by builders working on the incomplete structure.

The fox was captured and taken to Riverside Animal Centre in Wallington where it was fed and given a check-up.

Ted Burden, the centre's founder, said: "We explained to him that if foxes were meant to be 72 storeys off the ground, they would have evolved wings.

"We think he got the message and, as we released him back on to the streets of Bermondsey shortly after midnight on Sunday, he glanced at the Shard and then trotted off in the other direction."

wow ive just spent like the last hour just looking at that. It will be even more incredible with 122 Leadenhall and the pinnicle in that. I love the way the shard just stands alone from that view it really emphasises the hight aswell as showing off the crisp cladding
