“And marbled clouds go scudding by
The many-steepled London sky.”
― John Betjeman
Not too bad, huh! The storage closet was the substance that sealed the deal, but I fully acknowledge that the view was the style.
If you look closely you can see the spire of Big Ben and the top of the Houses of Parliament in the middle left amongst the cranes. We’ve got the top of the London Eye as well. Further right of the Shard we’ve also got a view of the Gherkin, but it’s mostly obscured by council housing building projects.
