The Shard

The Shard, or Shard London Bridge, nearing completion, in the London dusk.
One of the perks of living in London is there is always plenty to do. After watching a midweek open-air performance of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest near City Hall, Jeannie and I passed by the Shard.

At this time of the night the light had already left the streets, but at the top of the shard, in its nearly complete state, there was still plenty of daylight left to reflect off the steel and glass rising up over the south side of the Thames.

With this particular filter on the Instagram app, there was something reminiscent of the early 1970s colour photographs of the World Trade Center as it was being constructed.
