I walked through the City yesterday (a bank holiday) past a complete Heron Tower, a redundant Bishopgate Tower, the holes of the emerging Leadenhall and Fenchurch towers and finally, across Tower Bridge to the majesty of the Shard. What an amazing city I live in, no wonder more foreign visitors come to London than any other city in the World. Slightly biased opinion I know. But still true.

Back on topic! Here is a picture of The Shard taken on 19, February, 2011 by briburt

Southwark Bridge by briburt, on Flickr


And this is a recent picture taken yesterday by jim

The Shard by jim_2e0jps, on Flickr

By comparing these two pictures, i would say this construction progress is kind of fast, no?

A selection of pics taken throughout the course of today. Still messing about with the new m4/3 Panasonic G2. I've been pleasantly surprised by the results with the 14-42 kit lens.

More to be found in my Shard Gallery.

First thing this morning at More London




Lunch time at Queen Elizabeth Street




St Thomas Street




Backpack




West side glazing along Joiner Street, now the tower crane is gone






Peeking through the lattice of the new bridge for Thameslink 2000 that was shunted into place over Borough High Street over the holiday weekend.



Wider view of the new bridge




Finishing up with a couple in this evening's glorious sunshine (shame it was still a bit parky all day).

If you had compared with a one year old picture, the progress would be much faster

That's true. It's huge progress after a one year. I had a chance to visit London year ago (I was taking pictures of the Shard like crazy). This year I'm going to visit London again. And I'm wondering how big progress will be in 2 months (I'll be in July).

Of course, I'll take some pictures.
And as always - can't wait to see London again

Cheers

I know! To think January 2010 it was just a hole in the ground! Extremely impressive!

The most visually exciting part of the project is almost gone.
