Last night we went for a lovely dinner with friends Claire and Matthew, at one of my favourite haunts, Guiseppe’s Italian. The meal was wonderful as always, and we followed it with a drink in the nearby George afterwards (London’s last remaining galleried inn, which dates from the 17th century). From there we had a marvellous view of the South side of The Shard, and knowing that there was shortly going to be a laser show to celebrate its inauguration, Adam and I decided to make our way slowly home via a good spot to stand and watch it all.
We had our cameras with us, so we managed to get some shots of the building lit up from the North side in different colours, with the green flashing lasers which picked out some of the other major landmarks in London, such as Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf and The Gherkin. I can’t say I was massively impressed….it wasn’t so much a laser show, as a few flashing lights. It’s a shame they didn’t make more of it, especially as so many people had come out to see it!
