Yes - the last is special. Some great views there, you chose a good day to go. I really wanted to like the Shard, I want London to have exciting, inovative buildings, but ultimately found it disappointing. The attempt to make it look like jagged edges isn't convincing, it simply looks unfinished. And I hate those red blinds.

I have to say I hate it as a building. Too angular and it looks like a great big gash on the landscape of south London where it dominates everything. It's lovely close up but not at a distance. If they had built in in the City or Canary Wharf it might have looked less out of place.  As it is it's a bit of a monstrosity. I've given up trying to photograph it - I just don't like it enough to bother. I'm finding the newer buildings much more to my liking though.
