Photographer's Note

I mentioned in note to a previous photo that St Paul’s Cathedral is an iconic part of the London skyline, but unfortunately the view is increasingly ruined by high rise buildings. I think this demonstated in this photo. You could very well imagine what the view would look like with a forest of high rise buildings in the background. But I am not against modern architecture. I think the Millenium Bridge is a fine addition. The bridge and the cathedral is a great combination of old and new.

London Millennium Bridge is a steel suspension footbridge across the Thames in London and the linking Bankside with the City of London. The bridge opened 10 June 2000 and was the first new bridge across the Thames in central London since the Tower Bridge opened in 1894. The bridge is located between Blackfriars Bridge and Southwark Bridge.

The southern end is near Globe Theatre, Bankside Gallery and Tate Modern and the photo was taken through a window of Tate Modern.

Shortly after its opening in June 2000, the bridge closed due to pedestrians felt that the bridge swayed in an unpleasant way and Londoners called it the the "Wobbly Bridge". The bridge opened again after some modifications.
