photoblog image Gerkin in London

Gerkin in London

The now quite famous Gerkin building in central London - this shot was taken from the opposite side of the Thames from near the Glode Theatre. 

The main thing I like about this is contrasting angles of the three different styles of modern architecture, each one having a stripey texture to them to some degree.

Like your shot urban8. When I was in town shooting my gerkin there were orange suited window cleaners suspended from those hoops that you can see here, abseiling down as they cleaned!
urban8: That must have been great to see - what career do you think they chose first, dare-devil abseiler or window cleaner? A strange but clearly essential mix!!
Very good shot, well balanced, congratulations.
Laurence
urban8: Thanks Laurence - glad you like the result here.

It looks as if it's about to take off! Superb composition with very strong lines, and a very good mono
urban8: Hi Ellie - you're right, I never thought about that! I am sure there are some traditionalists out there who wish it would suddenly disappear.....
Another great take on this building. Nice one.
urban8: Cheers, Chris, it does help to have a stunning bit of architecture to photograph too.
