Picture #1 (not the panorama) is my favorite.

Canary Wharf has some of the best-looking skyscrapers in the world, in my opinion.

Centrepoint - One of London's first tall buildings, it stood empty for years after construction , its value was constantly rising, so the owner was making money with or without tennents.

Anyways, i like it:

And here's some pics of 'real' London, Shepherds Bush in West London. Its a fairly standard area, the sort you would fine anywhere in in London - with a mix of rich and poor, black and white etc etc.

These are just snapshots taken for a school project i'm doing on the area - but it gives a contrast to the glitz of the central London pics i've posted.



How much street clutter do we need




They like their fruit in Shepherds Bush...healthy folk...




Not so healthy..








The BBC HQ is just down the road in White City



A wonderful art deco block...

Cheers dude

I just take hundreds of pics of everything - and the law of averages means you get a few half decent ones

These are great pictures, especially the ones on the South-Bank. The Shepherd's Bush ones bring back memories, I lived there for a year in the early 90's. I didn't like it.

Brilliant. You can smell London's multicultural and tollerant personality from every corner, every building, every shot. Definitely the first city I ought to visit if I'm able to travel to Europe.
