Yesterday's intermittent sunshine saw me bounding out of the house to try and boost my body's levels of vitamin D.
It was only a short bike ride around Surrey Docks and Russia Dock Woodland, but it did the trick in feeding my soul and reminding me that hopefully, there are better days ahead.
I took a couple of snaps from the top of Stave Hill in the fading light. London's skyline is getting taller - on the left, next to Guy's Hospital tower at London Bridge, is the concrete core of the Shard with the outer structure following along behind. I believe the core has topped out, but from the other renderings I suspect there's a steel frame to go on the top of it so it's still not at its full height.
Other towers are currently under construction in the city (on the right of the picture) including Heron Tower and Bishopsgate Tower (aka the Pinnacle/the Helter Skelter) and the Leadhall Building (aka the Cheesegrater).
Incidentally, I forgot to mention that today marks the start of my fifth year of blogging! Thanks for stopping by and/or sticking around!
