It's pretty much one year to go till the Shard is finished.

In a year time the occupants would be glad to have spaces in the building. It's interesting to know about the great view of the city they would be getting from there.

I am afraid my new camera is making me snap happy...

Here's a bunch of photos selected from today's outing.

Another new lens in the mix, I'm also sorry to report. This was essentially a 'freebie' that came in a lot with a 24mm that I wanted. Its special properties are that it zooms from 75mm to 300mm. With G2 that's 600mm effective focal length 35mm; so, I took my tripod with me too because hand-holding something that long with a minimum aperture of f/5.6 with no Image Stabilsation is a bit of a tough call, even on a very sunny day like today. It's not a great lens, but it was an interesting experiment.

There's a few others from the evening on my way home at the end.

Usual mention that there's loads more in my Shard Gallery

Queen Elizabeth Street (24mm)




NE side of the core box from Tooley Street (300mm - spot the difference)




East side with the Xena Deck




South side of the core box from Weston Street




SE corner glazing




Slipform rig & the concrete pump




Backpack roof steel in situ




Backpack tower crane




South side hoist




Lowering a crane section at Gate 1




Gate 1: I just liked the light in this shot and the two guys talking by the fork lift make it. b/w seemed to suit it well. I think it may be one of my favourite photos I've taken since I started on The Shard.




West side from London Bridge Street




South side from St Thomas Street




Level 2 glazing on Joiner Street




Looking up the west side from Joiner Street

If I was working in the upper floors, going to work everyday would be such a pleasant activity.

Um, did you obtain copyright clearance for the renders and photos you used?

Some of the construction pics in the Gallery are credited to 'flickr' which doesn't encourage me to believe you did.

All the Flickr pics I used are not copyrighted and I emailed all of them for permission anyway.

Imm waiting for a reply on the renders, but I,very had less than 100 views so I don't see a problem in testing it out in the mean time

Hmm.

Well, the first that I located on Flickr was this, which is copyrighted, though released under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0 Licence which states

Now, forgive me for pointing this out, but 'elskapel' is the author of the photograph, not 'flickr'. Consequently your use of the image is outwith the terms of the licence. That is then as much a breach of copyright as if the image were All Rights Reserved.

CC Licenses do not mean there is no copyright.

If you had complied with the terms of the licence, then you wouldn't need to seek permission separately. If someone has released their photos under a CC licence, do them the courtesy of honouring their small requests. If it were my photo, I'd be refusing you permission because of what you have done.

You need to get this stuff sorted out, especially if you're publicising your site in places like this.

like I said, its not a finished site yet. I have a list of all the links to the flickr photos I have been allowed to use and have actually referenced all their names in the text. I even mentioned to the photo authors that their name may not appear on the site right away as I wanted it to be mostly complete first, they were fine with this and allowed me to use them anyway.
