Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

The Willis building

Loved the architecture of this office block in the heart of the city of London.



Reflected in the windows is Lloyds of London






At the front of the building is a number sculpture entitled 'One through Zero' by Robert Indiana. They stand out against the black and grey buildings that surround them.

  9. The reflection on the second pic is amazing ! Very intriguing, this effect...

    I like the last shot too... Thoses giant numbers are so out of place... They look just like you had photoshopped them. ^^

  11. Wasn't that the building which reflected so much that some things started burning? I had read about it recently.

  12. I try and I try but still I hate these glass boxes, even if they are architectural miracles !
    The only high buildings or rather skyscrapers I ever found beautiful were in Chicago, with golden decorations and a solid old architecture.
