my brother took this pic on his phone and when he showed me, on the small screen, it looked like a very tall and slender Shard. then i realised that one of the shards is almost hidden by the sunlight: brilliant

In May I go to London and I'm very curious about what impression on me to do this building.

Here's a few pics of what it looked like yesterday.


From Queen Elizabeth Street





The new steel at the top






St Thomas Street







Some of the canopies on St Thomas Street have received their glazing




West side from Joiner Street




Hoardings have come down on parts of the new bus station. Despite the signs saying that buses aren't picking up from here yet, people were queuing there this morning, so, apparently it's actually being used.




A view up London Bridge Street, with The Place on the left

Also, not a pyramid.

Also, tribute to London's 100s of church spires.

The Shard already belongs to the 10 must-see landmarks of London, according to the most famous british youtuber. (from min 01:00)
