Here is a quick look back at the north bank of London, around St Paul’s Cathedral and the city, over the last 15 years.
Millennium Bridge and skyline, London, 2004
This retrospective takes us back to the days before I had a decent camera, and before I even knew that some cameras have manual buttons. Shock, horror!
St Paul’s Cathedral, London, 2007
The gallery above shows the ever-constant theme of cranes, and shows some significant changes on the skyline. (Click to view larger versions). The Walkie Talkie (160 m) and Cheesegrater (225 m) completed in 2014 (you can see them both under construction in the 2013 images); the Scalpel (190 m) completed in 2018; and 22 Bishopsgate (228 m), seen close to completion in the image above, completed in December 2019.
By coincidence, Bushboy Brian has asked us to share the last shot from our SD card. As it happens I was in London yesterday, to take photos of Tower Bridge, and here is my last shot of the day (night view from a bar near the Tower of London).
