The Shard has become one of the most striking parts of the London Skyline. It isn’t just the size and shape that makes it stand out, although with just a shallow gaze the appearance is quite off beat.
The idea behind The Shard was to create a whole city inside one tall building in London. The Shard holds retail, offices, hotel, apartments, restaurants and a public areas.
During my photoshoot of the Tower Bridge I turned my eye across the banks to the other shore a couple of times. I couldn’t help but notice one of the latest additions to the London Skyline. For a modern building, it really has added something new and fresh to the London Skyline. The shape is without a doubt unusual. I decided to get a couple of shots of it while I was in a convenient spot and the evening light was still good.
The artificial lighting sparked on once as the sun began to fall creating a pleasant illumination from the buildings across the Thames. From this perspective the whole London Skyline seemed to fit harmoniously with the The Shard.
