ANCIENT AND MODERN

Southwark Cathedral  Shard

The Shard is the new Post Office Tower.  When I first came to London I would suddenly catch at glimpse of the PO Tower from unexpected places.  That role has now fallen to the Shard.  One weekend we glimpsed it from the Colley Hills in deepest Surrey, on this occasion the youngest CW and I were eating our Borough Market acquired lunches when we looked up and saw the towers ancient and modern competing with each other.

    Love this shot. There’s such a contrast between the old and new

    It a great juxtaposition between old and new. No way I could work all the way up there though!
