Photographer's Note

Always stays the same, nothing ever changes,
English summer rain seems to last for ages.
(Placebo: English Summer Rain)

The Gherkin from Bishopsgate. Held in hand, this is the 5th attempt to take it without handshake blur.

30 St Mary Axe, also known as the Gherkin and formerly the Swiss Re Building, is a skyscraper in London's main financial district, the City of London; completed in December 2003 and opened on 28 April 2004. It is 180 metres (591 ft) in height, with 40 floors. Its construction symbolised the start of a new high-rise construction boom in London. The building's name is its address — St Mary Axe being the street it is on.

The building was designed by Lord Foster, then-partner Ken Shuttleworth and Arup engineers, and was constructed by Skanska of Sweden between 2001 and 2004.
