The Shard in perspective
It was a beautiful summer’s evening, and with a day off to look forward to, it was time to indulge in some photography in central London.
One of my first ports of call was skyscraper The Shard, officially Europe’s tallest building. While not the first time it’s caught my eye, I stood right at its feet and took in the impressive views. Close up, this is some structure.
While on the pavement poised to take a picture, a helicopter buzzed overhead and around the The Shard. The camera was stuck in film grain mode so just had to take my moment, while I think the outcome is more dramatic. The helicopter looks like an insect next to this glass edifice. Quite astounding.
My fascination with this stark, tall building continues. I will publish a gallery of images from the shadow of The Shard in the coming days.
