Our best man and bridesmaid bought us tickets to take in "The View" from The Shard in London for our 40th anniversary.
The weather up to the day itself was capital K Krap, but on the day... well?
London likes to nickname its buildings, so the bendy one in the foreground is The Walkie-Talkie and behind it is the still-in-construction Cheesegrater. It's deliberately shaped like a chisel so that it wouldn't impair the view of St Paul's Cathedral from the East End! The black monolith to the left is the NatWest Bank tower - Vertigo 42 with a wine bar at the top with an equally fabulous view. The somewhat phallic black and blue building to the right is known as The Erotic Gherkin.
The sky had just enough contrast to make it interesting and check out the curvature of the earth!
I love London!http://www.flickr.com/photos/aprosexic/9203059090/
