Taken from the South Bank, facing east towards Blackfriars Bridge, in the early evening.
St. Paul's Cathedral (to the left of the bridge) was built in the late 17th century, to replace the old medieval cathedral that was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666. The Gherkin (the pointy building above the bridge) is one of London's most recent landmarks. The juxtaposition between the old and new is, I feel, one of London's most endearing qualities. The cranes across the horizon remind us that London is still growing.
