Photographer's Note

A view across the River Thames of the distinctive "big pickle" in the City of London, England, nick-named The Gherkin. This iconic London skyscraper formally the Swiss-Re Building is now actually called 30 St Mary Axe, but everyone knows it as the "London Gherkin". The building became part of the London skyline on its completion in December 2003. It stands on the site of the former Baltic Exchange which was extensively damaged by a Provisional IRA bomb that exploded on the 4 April 1992. In the foreground is the northern entrance to Tower Bridge and in the background the Heron Tower. Peeking in from the right side yet another crane, helping to construct a further new building in this part of the England's capital city.
