Finally decided to check out the share in person today, since I'm always seeing it from far away. In fact I'm standing under it right now. I only have my phone with me though so don't expect great pictures.

Didn't want to seem like I was spamming do I should maybe post something relevant.

EDIT: Nice day today so I'm going to walk back home to Forest Gate.

These are just a few that I got this afternoon taken with my phone so sorry for the low quality.

Is quite soon to ask when the exterior elevator goes away, but what's going on about the interior works?

Here's my second bite of the cherry today with a bunch of photos taken on my way home this evening:

[I just noticed I seem to have accidentally uploaded slightly larger than usual photos. Apologies to those impoverished of bandwidth]


More London foliage




Spire from NW








Gratuitous hoists shots






poor old Derrick Crane, he's finally gone






Somebody had a good view on their way into City Airport




Some infill required




Tidying up the white steel columns on St Thomas Street and Joiner Street




New bolt holes since yesterday suggest preparation for fitting the canopies soon.








Going up west




Something you don't see every day - I noticed the plaque on the building on the left bears the Royal Cypher of Edward VII.




Joiner Street and its escalator

Not only bandwith but also screen estate! My 15" laptop can barely handle them! Maybe that's because my browser is always zoomed in for the pictures

As usual, splendid photography, I have added you as a contact on flickr, my dear sir!
