The promised selection of pics from last Friday, with the remaining balance to be found in my Shard Gallery.
















Joiner Street canopy, looking pretty complete







and another section going up around the corner on the station side.

Haters complain Canary Wharf because of boxy-shaped towers.
Haters complain The City because of bullet-shaped building.
Haters complain The Shard because of it's triangle-shaped and they claim this looks similar to Pyaoyoung Hotel.
Haters gonna hate, no matter what size, shape, design London makes.
