Oh stop being so Hysterical. You sound ridiculous. Pot calling kettle...

From my experience, the British are the least nationalistic (always pessimistic). They are damned if they do and damned if they don't. Americans and the French tend to be more nationalistic if anything.

And who the hell are you stating this as fact on an Internet forum that the Brits are 'defensive' throwing around terms such as "Little England". If you cant deal with it get off the thread about 'London' or better yet the Internet if you can't deal with banter. Just stay on topic or get lost.

Taken just over half an hour ago


Druid Street







Tower Bridge Road by the junction with Queen Elizabeth Street was getting the full-on reflected sun treatment. Check out the shadow of the bike

As it happens I'm a Londoner, and a regular on the London forum.

Why do people want shiny / reflective cladding??

For those with extremely vulgar sensibilities, try Moscow or NYC for that matter!

For everyone else, welcome to London!
i personally love the shard's cladding - and also don't need to make disparaging remarks on architecture in other cities.

A few more pics taken this lunch time. Less dramatic progress than over the weekend.


The canopies to the east of Gate 2 on St Thomas Street seem to be complete now.




From Great Maze Pond, with the ubiquitous Guy's Tower




Lesser seen view - from the Memorial Park of Guy's campus




Three views of the spire moving westward








Nicked the idea from Chest. Well, I have used it a while back, but I was inspired by his recent posting to have another go myself





With the Borough Viaduct from Bedale Street





The Shard provides a backdrop for the Skanska crane on the corner of London Bridge Street and Borough High Street






West side spire views
