London has a great mixture of old and new buildings. Here’s the Gherkin and the church St Andrew Undershaft.

Great photo as always.
Wow. That looks interesting and shiny!!! 🙂
I won’t be offensive, but the immature teen in me really wants to make some lewd comments. hehe
love the juxtaposition of old and new
Great shot to capture old and new. The Gherkin is quite a striking building, but once again, I still love the old places more. 🙂
Oooh, I remember seeing the gherkin! It’s so cool 😃.
It’s taking me a long time to accept all these glass buildings we are seeing around the world. Your photo has a perfect message.
It can be jarring to see them.
Nice one. You’ll be up the Shard next!
I’ve been wondering about the name of that building. Thanks!
Interesting photo of the new and the old
I LOVE that shot! It looks like a big retro 50’s rocketship has landed in London. Very nice composition.
It could be a book cover idea…now I have to write a book about a rocket ship landing in London.
I remember my first trip to London – I was obsessed with that building for some reason. Every picture I took some how had it in it. It was so strange!
I don’t think you are alone. I hear people talk about it all of the time.
Haha! This totally looks like a gherkin. I love gherkins. With crumbly cheddar. Nom!
What an interesting photo. It looks like the new is growing out of the old buildings.
Very interesting shot of the new and the old but i have to say, i really don’t like that bullet – it just stands out too much in the London skyline.
It is hard to miss.
The Gherkin? Now that is unique!
Wow, what an interesting merging of old and new! Great shot!
What a contrast…great shot!
Yep, it truly looks like somebody has pulled up a huge gherkin shaped tardis. Dr Who is in the house! LOL
