A selection of my photos taken today - the rest may be found in my Shard Gallery.


First thing I noticed on my way through London Bridge station this morning was that they've opened up another section of the new concourse roof.






Caught some nice light on the north side on the walk to work along Tooley Street






Lunch time and it's the view from Queen Elizabeth Street




Three levels of glazing on the north side of the concrete section now.




There was some interesting looking steelwork being put on the top of the Backpack




A couple of views of the slipform rig from Snowsfields and Weston Street respectively






A wider view from Weston Street




Picking out some glazing...

The south side from Great Maze Pond




The western side from Joiner Street

I was viewing your photo galleries on your website in the other day. It's really great and i just love the way you provide description and Exif data under the pictures, which gives me opportunity to imitate good setting and how to take pictures perfectly

You can say whatever you like about the architecture but with a proper explanation.

Everytime i come to this thread i get more excited about showing it off to the world in 2012. When it is finished it will be added to london's portflio of amazing architecture with an icon from every age of its history.

Absolutely, I just hope the media and the film industry know how to take full advantage of this tower when showing aerial shots.
