Great shots. Did the guy in the first one get wet?
Building looks out of place with the Tower Bridge in the background, but fits right in from the other direction.
I have never seen that before. When was it built?
No, he made it okay. Though he was still going back and forward when I left so who knows. I rather like the contrast between this building (and surrounding modern but less distinctive buildings) and the Tower Bridge. Looking across the river from here there's also a great architectural juxtaposition between the Tower of London and the Gherkin.
Dave it was opened in 2002 to house the offices of the Mayor of London and the London Assembly.
I like the contrast between the old structure of the bridge and the new building...
Excellent, Olli. Very interesting building!
A couple more contrasting old and new. First, the Tower of London with the Gherkin behind and then the tower of Southwark Cathedral with the uncompleted Shard behind. Both with the NEX-5 and 18-55.

I agree, old cities like London with new buildings all around it are facinating.
