It looks so unreal. Frankly it doesnt look right in the London skyline, but I suppose one will get use to it.

That's a great picture. It's as if the Shard is another church/cathedral spire. Suits London perfectly.

It's weekend bonus pics time

Something a little special as I'm in a very good mood with the weather being nice... I've uploaded some huge files for you to enjoy.

Please, don't anybody do anything stupid with them. I'd hate to have to take them offline.

Click on the image in the post (effectively a chunky thumbnail) to get to the big photo.


First up, a close up of the south east view spire from Weston Street




3-shot stitch of the SE view




The final image is the east side from Druid Street, which was assembled from 42 individual frames. The original is 165 megapixels, the one I've put up is 'just' 41 Mpx.

edit: OK. It was 41 Mpx until I discovered Photobucket imposes a 4,000 x 3,000 pixel size limit on the files it serves, so it's only 10.6 Mpx. Sorry about that.

The building dividing London
May 26, 2012

Peter Murray and Sir Simon Jenkins share their views on the Shard building and its effects on the city’s landscape and identity

I love the Shard for the same reason that other people hate it – I can see it from all over London. It pops up in views from Richmond Park and Canary Wharf, from high-up Highgate and lowly Peckham. And I am not alone. The Shard is already a very popular building. Colleagues who commute on trains that arrive each morning into London Bridge report that throughout its construction the conversation in the carriages has been universally favourable, with none of the “monstrous carbuncle” comments that greet many a new arrival to the capital’s streets.

It generates wonderful surprises in the cityscape. London has few axial vistas, its random layout rarely creates the symmetry beloved of city planners such as Paris’s Haussmann; so it is a thrill to find that by chance the Shard emerges dead centre of the view down historic Rotten Row in Hyde Park. And as I cycle over Sawyer’s Hill on Richmond Park on a clear Sunday morning I see the Shard standing imperiously to the south of the City of London’s cluster of towers, as though cocking a snook at its neighbour, who for 800 years has been richer and more powerful. The Shard unashamedly symbolises the regeneration of the borough of Southwark and provides the substitute spire which its cathedral sadly lacks.
