First up: the weekend bonus pic - two shot stitch from this morning.





As you can see, it was a bit misty.





Took un tour de la tour at lunch time. Focusing on crane activity, for obvious reasons.


















There was another crane on site by Gate 1.



Photographic note - all prime lenses today, with first outings for a couple of recent eBay wins: an FD 135mm f/2.0 and FD 85mm f/1.8. I think they passed the test

These areas are intended to be open, so probably not much.

Damn, I love how this building has turned out. Seems like a couple of weeks ago that it was just a stub of a core. This has already become a London icon and hopefully this will pave the way for more world-class supertalls in London. We can only hope
