A Fabulous Friday Feeling - Looking Up

In amongst the errands and industrious working I took time to gather up a bunch of eucalyptus leaves from Borough Market (I always admire the shape these leaves create, as they stick out at an almost un-naturally rigid 90 degrees from their stem, when ever I see them),

and I stopped to look up...

in amongst the traditional leaded and copper spires a new bright and shiny neighbour is making its presence felt round these parts.

Renzo Piano's Shard is nearing completion.  It is adding a touch of brilliance and shine to the horizon. 

The sunshine through the rain always makes me feel like, yes, it will all be ok in the end!

Bon Weekend mes amis!
