A View from the Top

Now who’s glassy high-rise office does this spectacular view belong to? This is a picture taken from Mr Young’s mobile phone while on his break, up in the sky although his office is far from large and glamourous. Mr Young operates the crane that has just completed Western Europe’s tallest building, located in London. It is called ‘The Shard’.

The Shard is a staggering 95 floors of 12 tonne steel and glass and boasts views as beautiful as this one. Mr Young’s photos also include things like the sunset illuminating the curvature of the earth as well as the large arch of a rainbow over London. Although they are in pretty low resolution, they still show us a perspective and side to London that people rarely see.
