Finally getting around to processing age-old shots...and finding some stuff I really like.  This set comes from the London Open House an annual Sept event, where the public is invited to run around and explore all manner of buildings off limits to the public on most days.  Some quite famous and some lesser known locations included.    

This is London City Hall, a particularly impressive building that sits down on the river next to Tower Bridge.  A controversial design when it was completed in 2002 it like most London buildings it has a variety of nicknames that range from "Darth Vader's Helmet" to many less appropriate for polite conversation.

The open house allowed us into the middle of the building where one can appreciate the fantastic spiral staircase that slowly leads the visitor back down to river level.
