'almost' ah I see

I'm guessing that view is from the BT tower? Either way the shard looks great from it- prefer the 1 New Change viewing platform angle though.

A steel frame, as this render illustrates

The Shard is already a giant monster in the city although this long spire has not been added yet.

As it was sunny today I thought I'd go out and take some more pictures (it could be a busy summer). Here's a few of them.

The rest are up in my Shard Gallery.

First up, on my way into work this morning I took advantage of the sun on the northern side of the building.






As luck would have it, an FD to Micro 4/3 adapter arrived on my desk at work about 11am. This lets me use all the thirty-year-old manual-focus lenses from my Canon FD film cameras on the shiny new digital Panasonic G2. So, the real reason I went out was to try it out. Because the m4/3 sensor is half the size of a frame of 35mm film, for example my FD 70-210mm f/4 zoom effectively becomes a 140-420mm lens, which means I can zoom in a lot closer than I can with the 5D I usually use.

Enough of the technical jabber... I had a tremendous amount of fun

East side from Tooley Street. Note the glazing on the concrete frame. First time I've seen it on this side of the building. It wasn't there yesterday and I don't think it was there this morning.




From Snowsfields




Backpack and Mini-Backpack glazing from St Thomas Street




St Thomas Street hoist (I don't get bored with this for some reason)




Construction workers by Gate 2




Some glazing details on the NW corner






The crease




Evening descends at More London




Detail view of the new station concourse roof where it's visible by platform 13
