looking down at london

Today I met up for lunch with my friends Dave and James and went up to one of the top floors of One Canada Square in London's Docklands. It's the tallest building in the UK and I've been dying to go up there for ages. And man, what a VIEW!!! I took a zillion photos, but I thought you might like to see the work-in-progress Olympic stadium. (Click on the image or here to see a closeup shot.)

I absolutely love packing cranes, I think they're some of the most beautiful pieces of architecture on the planet. Some day I want to spend a few weeks painting the orange ones in Seattle's docks. You might recognise these from the Bond river chase scene in the beginning of The World is Not Enough.
