One of the great things about living in London is the contrast between old and new. The city is constantly changing. I can’t even keep up with the amount of new skyscrapers there are. For all I know there could be a building nicknamed The Ladle to follow on from the kitchen themed name of The Cheese grater.
The building that lurks behind Tower Bridge here is the Shard. It is actually quite hard to get them lined up when you are looking for a certain perspective. Of course when the tripod police are lurking nearby as they were here, every shot adds some fun risk to the equation.
