About This Image

This photograph, of The Historic Tower of London and the surrounding skyline, including the ultra modern 'Gherkin'(building shaped like a torpedo), is what came to mind when "The Winds Of Change" was suggested for the current competition.

Architecture, has evolved over centuries and skylines all across the world change constantly; some more slowly (in a gentle breeze) and others more quickly and dramatically, like the gusting of the wind.

Thanks for looking. :)

Thanks Mary, Lorraine and Carol for your comments; am glad you like it. Mary, I thought that the building must have had another name but it doesn't. I think it's sometimes known as 'The Cucumber' too. It certainly is a wonderful piece of architecture and thanks for the extra info'. :)

An interesting architectural/skyline shot Jas, especially viewing the larger version. Enjoyed reading your description. I was interested and curious about the name Gherkin building because of Gherkin pickles so did a google search on it and found that in December 2005, the building was voted the most admired new building in the world, in a survey of the world's largest firms of architects, as published in 2006 BD World Architecture 200.
