Guinness' Trust Buildings

London The Unfinished City
In Guinness We Trust.

Saturday September 7, 2013.

It was during one of my 'let's do a left, then a right, then a left', wanders around the Unfinished City, when I came across these buildings. 

These tenement blocks were the seventh such buildings to be built by the Guinness Trust, in London.

The Shard

Reflections of clouds on The Shard
Reflections on a Shard of Glass.

Saturday September 7, 2013.

It was while on another walk around Southwark and the surrounding area, that I found myself on St Thomas Street. As I walked eastward towards The Horseshoe Inn, I looked up and realised that I was directly below The shard.

Having only really seen it from the north bank, and from afar, I couldn't help but snap this shot from this odd angle, with the clouds reflected in the thousands of glass panels.
