This turned out a lot more apocalyptic than I was planning. The view is the city of London from the south bank near Tower Bridge. I was there to visit the Sherd, also a very futuristic experience.
The skyscrapers are all named after household gadgets; left to right The Walkytalky, the Cheesegrater and the Gherkin. These are not their official names of course...
When we first moved to London we stayed near the Gherkin (or Swiss Re building). Actually swiss re sounds like a kind of cheese so that is no better really. It was a very surreal experience as it was right opposite the living room window like a giant spaceship.
There is a lot of wet on wet ink here and it is even more monochrome. Actually the view is very attractive. Many cranes as London is being endlessly demolished and rebuilt in an urban chaos which is quite exciting.
