The Viewing Platform

As part of the 2012 London Olympics preparations, a viewing platform was built so that visitors (including the all-important International Olympic Committee) could see the whole site and the progress which was being made.  This "platform" is, in fact, the equivalent of a Portakabin which has effectively been glued on top of a 21-storey block of flats!

Being so high results in a truly panoramic view of the whole of the Olympic Site - and most of London, in fact.  It was a hazy day and I was shooting through glass, but the results are still fairly spectacular.

More than one person commented on the fact that the tower block was swaying slightly in the breeze, which is yet another reason why I don't think I could live in one of those things...
