This Picture of The Shard Looks Like It Could Have Been Taken In the 19th Century

How’s this for a Friday photo? Daniel Thorndycraft describes how he took the picture above:

“I was looking at trying to find somewhere to upload a photo that I took at 09:30 Tuesday 21st January as I was on my way to a training course just over the Southwark Bridge

I was gutted that I didn’t take me DSLR with me and this was taken on my iPhone 5, the only things on my phone that was switched on was the HDR function and its not been adjusted on the phone at all, and I was stunned at to how perfect it looked, and I know have it on my background on my work computer, I hope you like it as much as I do!”

Well I certainly do, what do you think?

When: June, 2012

Where: Taken from the Victoria Embankment looking south towards the Shard

Story: Not really sure what the story of this picture is, but I liked seeing the Shard immersed in fog. Really neat effect. I hope for the sake of the owners of the Shard that this doesn’t become a common occurrence. Also seeing the Millennium Bridge in the foreground adds to the whole scene.

When: May 30, 2012

Where: Taken on London Bridge

Story: I’ve been meaning to post this picture for awhile now. Given that I’ve featured a lot about the Shard this week I though now was as good a time as any. This photo was taken the morning of May 30th, 2012. I’m not sure what caused the bizarre shiny reflection, but it is not photoshopped. Many other people got the exact same photo that day. Really neat to see, almost make it look like a beacon of progress.

Story: Great sunrise view of The City of London as taken from the Shard last month. Love the panorama effect that let’s you see all the way out to Canary Wharf. Notice the rings for the Olympics have just been installed on Tower Bridge.
