    Following in kevin arnold's footsteps, me and mito climbed the tower crane in May. After waiting patiently for a gap in traffic, we were in. The tower crane is hideously exposed to the neighbouring hotel and we were being watched on the accent by a guest at his window. Soon we were away from prieying eyes and high above the junction of Whitechapel Road and Commercial Road. This tower crane primarily offers a panormaic view of The City. I later returned in August with a new telephoto lens after my original targets for the night were both called off due to construction workers still being on site at 02:00.

    01. Constructed from 2005 to 2009, Broadgate Tower stands at 164 metres (538 ft):

    02. Christ Church, Spitalfields is an Anglican church built between 1714 and 1729 to a design by Nicholas Hawksmoor:

    03. 2.5 miles (4.0 km) to the east, Canary Wharf:

    04. Close to a ''Hey, I can see my car from here'' shot, I was parked behind the Ford:

    05. No matter how many photographs I attempted (this being the sixth attempt), the worker in the desert combats just wouldn't stay still:

    06. 30 St Mary Axe & Tower 42:

    07. I never tire of views towards The City cluster:

    Another fun building site to add to the list. Nice unobstructed views into the city and an entertaining access, as we climbed the crane we went up past some hotel windows, fat man getting changed, not quite what I was there to see. For most of the time we sat on the counterweights. Forsaken had the good side first,

    So I took pictures of the less interesting stuff...

    Then I had my turn, a quick fisheye of the city,

    and then decided to get a panorama done. Very inconsiderately the sun decided to rise as I was getting near the end of this so theres another section to the right that I've cropped off.

    Then, I visit the crows-nest, the sun further rearing it's ugly head and me being consicious of the fact we needed to get out soon I just banged out a few quick handheld shots from up there.

    Forsaken, still sat on the counterweights below, requests a picture with him in it. Here you go mate...
