Hi all... first post 'n' all that!

Just a few taken on Monday. Not the best pictures but somehow the sheer majesty of the building makes up for that.... what a beast of a skyscraper! She may not be the worlds tallest, but the architecture is truly awesome! Superb addition to an already fantastic London skyline.

Hey midget1, welcome to the forums! Your pictures are awesome, so you should totally keep them coming. What kind of camera do you use?

Great pictures midget1, cheers for posting. BTW does anyone know what's going on with the turquoise building and the land next to it? The colour makes me think of Istanbul - more Ottoman than Victorian.
