    Great shot to capture old and new. The Gherkin is quite a striking building, but once again, I still love the old places more. 🙂

  6. 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.

    I LOVE that shot! It looks like a big retro 50’s rocketship has landed in London. Very nice composition.

    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!

  12. Haha! This totally looks like a gherkin. I love gherkins. With crumbly cheddar. Nom!

  13. Northern Narratives says:

    What an interesting photo. It looks like the new is growing out of the old buildings.

  14. Lynne Ayers says:

    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.

    The Gherkin? Now that is unique!

  16. Fergiemoto says:

    Wow, what an interesting merging of old and new! Great shot!
