Shabby Chic

Another building on Southwark Street, near the Borough Market. It appears abandoned, but then you wonder about that tree.....

Another wall of windows

Another wonderful wall of windows, this one appropriately near the Tate Modern, on Southwark Street. It reminds me of the plaid skirt I wore in grammar school.

St Paul's

This is the view from one of the lawyer offices: the dome of St Paul's reflected in the building across the street. Reflections in windows are one of my favorite things to photograph, and in this one I love how the boxes in the office windows above the reflection of the spire almost look like another skyline above the clouds.

Here's another view of St Paul's on a Saturday morning, framed by the Millennium Bridge. I like the old church in that familiar, classic shape with the ultramodern bridge in front of it. And those cranes! Is there another city in the world in this sad economy where so much construction is going on?
