London Skyline HMS Ocean Ship

The Royal Navy aircraft carrier HMS Ocean moored along the River Thames in Greenwich as part of its month-long operation to help safeguard the London 2012 Olympic Games.


A few miles In the background is the city of London, home to the capital's financial district an stock exchange. There are always building sites in the city, as old buildings are demolished to make way for new ones. At the moment, the trend is for tall glass-clad structures, moving ever further away from simple cuboid shapes. The Gherkin is... well, gherkin shaped. The Shard is like a massively stretched pyramid. The Pinnacle is going to look like a chicken wrap. And the building at 20 Fenchurch Street is going to look like a walkie-talkie.
