Warning - a lot of photos incoming! I was in London for all of yesterday and I pretty much filled up my camera, so I've cut down dramatically in terms of Shard photos, but still leaving a lot of them - I don't want to delete any more!

From Vauxhall:




From outside Westbourne Park tube station:




From around Central London:
























































And a vertical panorama to finish things off:

Yeah it was a shame about the weather. Ah well, at least it didn't rain.
Thanks for the comments, guys. I always go crazy with a camera whenever I'm in London (which isn't as often as I'd like), and I love photography in general so I try and get interesting angles etc. whenever I can.

thx LJ the shard is near completion but obviously the glass is still quite dirty tho.

we only have to wait for the cleaning people and no doubt we will see a different colour when everything is done.



the view from the shard (pics from dailymail)

Well Europe isn't a real European territory, it is more of an Asian appendix

Agreed, those people will find criteria in order the Shard be the tallest skyscraper in Europe no matter what. Rather than sticking to the topic and Shard´s architectural prowess, they keep bitching about absolutely pointless attribute of this building.
