Taken on February 28, 2009 with an Olympus FE-340.
I know, there are probably many images of 30 St Mary Axe (also known as the Gherkin and Swiss Re building) here already. But for myself who is not British, it was really exciting to get close to it. London is rich in history, but meanwhile you can also see a lot of modern architecture being developed and taking over; and we’re also moving towards building up, so our tall skyscrapers over shadow history in place and time.
Here the Gherkin already looks much taller than the old buidlings in front. But at the same time, one of those glass diamond is already about twice the height of a person!
