i didn't something weird to the colours on the shot above.  i thought it was interesting so there you go.

probably quite an easy one for londoners, but can anyone guess the building ?

i don't know if you've noticed but i now do a bit more post-processing on my photo in Lightroom.  hopefully i don't usually completely fry them, although i did do a bit more fiddling on this one.

I like both the effects, but can't decide which one i like best.  possible the top one.  dunno.  wadyafink ?

there aren't many places in london you can get a decent distant view of the gherkin and appreciate its slender curves

this photo is quite dense so is worth clicking for the big version. it's a shame about the hazy day, but you can make out St Paul's Cathedral, Natwest Tower, the Gherkin and the Docklands in the distance

The Monument is one of those funny places which people just forget about. i had a meeitng a few minutes walk from it and i was a bit early so i paid my £2 and went in
http://www.funkypancake.com/blog/stuff3/2005/09/DSC05472-thumb.jpg

there's 311 steps on the cantilevered stone staircase which seemed to go on forever
http://www.funkypancake.com/blog/stuff3/2005/09/DSC05462-thumb.jpg

right at the top of the Monument is a drum and a copper urn from which flames emerged, symbolising the Great Fire. The whole thing is 202 feet high - the exact distance between it and the site in Pudding Lane where the Great fire of London began on 2 Sept 1666. The Monument was built to commemorate the Great Fire of London and to celebrate the rebuilding of the city.

thanks to 300+ years of public access the viewing platform is covered in graffiti
http://www.funkypancake.com/blog/stuff3/2005/09/DSC05445-thumb.jpg

of course the thing that once stood high above the city is now lost amongst the taller building around it, like the new gherkin building
http://www.funkypancake.com/blog/stuff3/2005/09/DSC05441-thumb.jpg

but there's still a fine view of Tower Bridge and the river

here is the view from the 5th floor on our brick lane office. i was based there for a year a while back but didn't have a window seat. i don't miss the commute either.

still, this view greeted me yesterday morning. you can clearly see the gherkin and natwest tower (as transversed earlier this week)

another picture of the london gherkin for your delight.

here is london's newest landmark - the gherkin. i took this photo as it looked nice, but it also shows a little man in a box dangling off a very thin stick, cleaning the windows.
