London, part two.
While I was in London last month, getting over the long long flight from Australia and trying to stay awake through jet lag I took the opportunity to visit The Shard.
It was still being built in 2011 when I was a frequent visitor to London's sights. I had to go go up now it was finished! The cost was more expensive than I expected View from the Shard info but seeing I'd just flown in a circle around half the earth I paid and up I went. The great thing is you are allowed to take photographs. It occurred to me later that it would have been also be quite something at night..
There are other towers of glass nearby. Photographed going up the escalator after exiting The Shard
Amazing architecture - from within
A couple engrossed in looking at the pointy bit
The views are spectacular
I like the shard, the space age jaggedness of it and the fact that the top of it looks a bit like the prongs that hold Eye of Sauron in the Lord of the Rings trilogy..
More London pics to come. I took more than I thought!
Have a good week,
