22 July 2012 • View from a point almost in the middle of Borough High Street, opposite the Police Station. The church in the fore-ground is St George the Martyr which stands almost opposite Borough Underground Station. The architect of the Shard of Glass, Renzo Piano, is on record as having said that his design was a modern interpretation of the shape of the spires on churches in London. It was with this sentiment in mind that this picture was taken – to highlight the similarity of the shape of the Shard when compared to St George’s spire.
