One thing that makes the shard interesting is that it looks different from every angle.

Almost done

I love this building so much! It got London's skyline more beautiful than before! It will get better when they finish the Leadenhall and The Pinnacle!

Greetings from the Dominican Republic!

Guy's Hospital has now faded into the background. Ugly as it is it does not detract from the beauty of the Shard.

The Shard looks beautiful. It is a very unique looking structure for London. Last time I was in London was 2010 and it was only half built. This year am going back down to London next month for my holidays and I am looking forward to seeing this building in it's whole form for real.

Weekend bonus pic taken from Tower Bridge this lunch time; a vertical pano stitched from 9 shots with a 200mm lens. The original is about 15,000 pixels tall
