Anyone else got a Flickr site?

Mine is here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/8615362@N07)

As a taster, here's a candid shot of a hotel porter, taken this lunchtime in Russell Square, London, as he waited to hail a cab.

'The Gherkin' (actually Swiss Re at St Mary Axe, London) by Sir Norman Foster – so this contribution doubles as photography and architecture. ;) It's a beautiful building – incredibly elegant (and enviornmentally very good too). Mind, I'm a fan of Foster's work – I think that he's an amazing architect.

Excellent stuff. :up:

Look how shiny the porter`s shoe is!
And 'The Gherkin' pic is neat; old against new. Bet it caused quite a stir...

Well done, Sybarite. :clap:

Many thanks, Rojo.

Art Rock – some crackers here and on your Flickr. And I love the cutlery. Such an unobvious subject for a picture, but it works so well – and the clocks for sale; great stuff.

Nice pics, Art Rock ...
Sybarite, can you share some info about the Ghirkin structure? Is it a business tower or just residences?

My flickr site here, (http://www.flickr.com/photos/cromorne/)still in its infancy, but it will grow in time.

Hi Krummhorn. It's an office block. According to the Foster and Partner website: "30 St Mary Axe, Swiss Re HQ, London UK, 1997-2004

London's first ecological tall building and an instantly recognisable addition to the city's skyline, 30 St Mary Axe is rooted in a radical approach – technically, architecturally, socially and spatially. Generated by a radial plan, its energy-conscious enclosure resolves walls and roof into a continuous triangulated skin, allowing column-free floor space, light and views."

I live quite near to it and have loved it since it was built.

Here's another one:
