Apologies if I fail to understand sarcasm. But how and why is it fixed? Do you happen to be French?

I thought the Olympics would boost the amount of pictures/updates taken to the Shard, but so far it's been quite the opposite.

They are probably all too busy watching the Olympics.

This looks really excellent, the best addition to London's skyline there has ever been, imo.

These pictures from the city towards the Shard are just great but I wonder how that will be in the near future when Shrek’s big fat thumb is going to cover the Shard. You can clearly see how the walkie talkie will change the skyline.

Externally complete, yes. Internal fit-out continues. Open to the public in February next year.

I am pleasantly surprised, it isn't as horrible as I thought it would be when they revamped the designs.

And it looks awesome in the skyline!

Thanks for all your great pictures!
