    So many cranes.

      The building work was started before the recession began.
      The number of cranes are a good indication of London’s financial health. The most I have see, some years ago was 42 tower cranes – that was in boom years when 1960 & 70 office blocks were being replaced.

    Is the building continuing or are the cranes just there waiting for the economy to improve?

      I notice where apartments were being built the work stopped, but it has now recommenced. As for the office blocks which had been started the work didn’t stop, but it slowed. I know of a number of large office block developments which had not started were put on hold, and there is no sigh, as yet, of the work starting.

    Well at least it was dry and sunny when we were down in the City.

    Sorry to say, we did’nt get to go into the Gallery itself, owing to time running out to catch the coach back to Lincolshire.

    Sorry if my pics were that good to make you feel cheated.lol.
    As you know, I’m a sucker for reflections.

      You missed out in not going into the gallery – if only for a quick walk around.

      I didn’t feel cheated – I’m always happy to go for a walk in Hyde Park on a sunny afternoon. And I would have been disappointed if I had missed seeing the pavilion – its just that its not a “stop you in your tracks” building. One the attendants told me it had been sold, but didn’t know to who or the price. I think more could have been made of double reflections to disorientate the viewer and open up new visual perspectives.

      I’ve started to download some of the shots I took, which I might post on the blog Saturday or Sunday (making due reference to your blog)

    You’re too kind – my friend.
