The Gherkin

Shot with Olympus E500
While I was standing there, I had to turn around and shoot the Gherkin, didn't I?

As I've said before, the Gherkin is one of my favourite London buildings, especially because of the way it changes according to where you are. Here are my previous photos of it: 1, 2, 3, 4

This is a very good shot; i've never met the Gherkin in person. Love the angle.

I should write lines, "Must remember to say Gherkin." There was me calling it a suppository for some reason. :)

Ham,
In quilting we have a block pattern called "Pickle Dish" that is reminiscent of cut glass facets. Here you give us the pickle and the dish in one! This is a wonderful shot. Love the POV.
