London's changing skyline

This has for long been the image of London. Historic and imperial, valuing the traditional over the new.

But cutting into the skyline is the unmistakable dagger that is the Shard.
Modern and imposing, signalling to the world a city unafraid to find itself in the 21st Century.

It's a lovely evening to wander by the Thames opposite the Tower, sharing the view with hundreds if not thousands of tourists.

Welcome to London, 2012.
