I like the contrast between that of the gazebo and the distant skyline of London. We used to have a gazebo at work and in the summer time it was a great place to retreat when mosquitoes were out.


There were two highrise buildings I see that I wonder what their name might be. The tall pointed structure on the left and the building to the right with the white top that looks as if it is leaning towards the viewer.

The tall pointy building is The Shard by London Bridge, 87th tallest building in the world and tallest building in the EU.
The leaning building is infamous for the downward angle of its windows melting parts of cars parked in the street below and from its shape is popularly called The Walkie Talkie. Its correct nomenclature is simply 20 Fenchurch street.

Love your notes about the 87th tallest building in the world - certainly lends a unique shape to the skyline of London. But that leaning building looks like it has eaten too many helpings of plum pudding as it appears to be bulging in the middle Smile Super perspective, Vic, I love how my eye is guided past the gazebo to the skyline of London. Such a shame the pigeons didn't clean up after themselves!

Is this vantage point far from home Vic? I love the clear light and rich colours,
