Location: 7 More London Riverside

This building is part of the development that sits between London Bridge Station and Tower Bridge, and surrounds City Hall. It's an area of the type that's far too common in London - what you think is public space is actually privately owned, and has the security guards to prove it.

This is the sort of building I'd like to have more of in London. It's not afraid to be bold (and, let's face it, a little bit ridiculous) and that makes it way more interesting than the usual glass-sided box.

The best angle for this one is also the most obvious. Everyone who's ever photographed this building has a shot just like this one but I don't mind that.

You should also check out this more abstract shot of another part of More London.

Gear: Nikon D810 and Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8
