No - if I had been on my own, I probably would have, but I was with a group of people and had barely enough time to stop and take the photo.

I spent Sunday afternoon taking pictures of many of London's new skyscrapers. I hardly ever get in the centre since they charged to drive in on weekdays in 2003 so I didn't recognise it at all on Sunday. This is in Southwark by the Thames. The Oxo Tower is an old landmark in Waterloo.

The Shard near London Bridge. It was left like this as the plans for the taller version were rejected so it stopped short.

Located close to the centre of the ancient City of Exeter in Devon, 16 Edmund Street, or the Merchant House, dates from sometime during the 14th century and was one of the oldest surviving houses in Exeter despite the best efforts of the Luftwaffe to destroy the city centre. Initially ear-marked for demolition to make way for Exeter's new inner by-pass during the early 1960s, its importance as a building of architectural and historic significance, caused the demolition to be halted. Exeter City Council, with government help from the government decided to spend £10,000 to have the house moved out of the way of the new road. Known locally as 'The House that Moved', it was jacked up and relocated in its entirety almost eighty metres downhill to its current position. It is currently in use as a bridal emporium.

It turns out I was very lucky going to Tower Bridge on Sunday (despite the sign I wanted being on a road closed to make a film), as it's just been closed for three months.
