Part 7

Last set of photos from platform 2 of LB station...









All the photos on here do not do the size of the Shard justice, It look way bigger up close.

Cant wait for it to Top Out. A big credit to London!!!

OK. Here's a little Wednesday afternoon treat taken at lunch time - a 4 shot vertical pano in hi-res

p.s. everyone's always going on about how you can't appreciate the scale of The Shard from photos. Maybe some finger-scrolling this will help?



edit: I think this should work properly now.

I don't think so but in such a prime location I doubt there will be a shortage of interested buyers.

Btw, glorious pictures as usual Rob.

A selection of my other photos from yesterday. The rest can be seen in my Shard Gallery
















I thought these made rather a nice arrangement with The Shard as a background



The bus station roof isn't being demolished entirely (at least until the major rebuilding of London Bridge Station happens after the Olympics). On the north side it's being cut back to the line of this huge new truss that's been put in place.
