Another reason why I love London....

I was too early to meet friends for dinner the other night so popped into One New Change, a new(ish) shopping centre next to St Pauls Cathedral. The shops were ok, nothing exciting but quite a nice place to shop if you're in the area. I was about to leave when I noticed the lift went up to the 6th floor of the building so I jumped in to see what was up there & I was greeted with this....
Wow! Thankfully there weren't many people around & I happened to time it perfectly with a bit of a sunset. Unfortunately I only had my little point & click camera but I can't wait to head back with my Lumix to get some proper snaps when there's a full on sunset.
I loved this reflection of the church on the side of the building & the picture on the right really reminds me of Mary Poppins for some idea. My little jelly lenses were definitely a good buy to make some snaps a bit more interesting.
I'm really chuffed with the snap below with the London Eye & the OXO tower in the background. I don't get to see enough of London from this height, I might see what other buildings have viewing areas of the skyline.
On my way back down in the glass elevator (no I'm not Willy Wonka) I loved this reflection in the walls of the shops. Also, as if the evening hadn't been good enough, I met with my mates & when I ordered an ale it was brought to me in a proper metal tankard! I'm so ladylike I surprise myself sometimes!
