The Building of the Shard

Well, I don’t know where time is going but lately, I have been delving into the 10-year-old archives. I must admit I’ve found some treasures, photos that I didn’t think were good enough to be shown.

Going back 10 years ago, I wasn’t familiar with Lightroom and all I was using at the time was Google Picasa.

In fact, it was just the start of our journey into photography. Fast-forwarding to present day… one image that I thought would be destined for the bin was one I shot in a side-street in London looking at the Shard which was still being built.

A photograph of the Shard photographed from a side street in London.

  5. I love this – the contrast of the futuristic Shard with the cobbled street below tells a real story.
