Mirrors ....

... on the outside:


This top building is right on London Bridge - and you can see the Gherkin reflected to the back right, one of London's most famous (and favourite) buildings now, designed by Norman Foster.




The other photos here are of a much earlier Norman Foster building - the Willis Faber & Dumas building in Ipswich, Suffolk.

I haven't been to London since 1985. The Gherkin bldg. What a great nickname. Much has changed and I'm sure I'd enjoy it all. Your photos are wonderful, especially the first one.

Survival group against God?? LOL. Good luck with that. Truth is, no one knows the exact time this will happen except the man upstairs, however, I firmly believe that there are people placed here by God that post the warning signs and it's up to you to take heed.
