The Shard opened today in London and I’m looking forward to seeing Konstantin‘s photos, when he goes up to the viewing gallery – 245 metres above street level – this weekend. Firstly because I greatly enjoy seeing aerial photos of the city, but also because I received (as yet unbooked) tickets to go up the tower myself as a recent birthday present. This photo is from a trip to London in June 2012, when the tower was still under construction (and still the tallest in Europe).
