    Not really, Kev.
    The glass is only about 2 feet wide and you have to move around to get a better idea of the layout.
    I think the idea was to show the full height of it.
    What we can see is the NE corner (I think!).
    The Hilton Hotel is on a lot of the site of the old dock.

    at least they have had the foresight to allow us to glimpse even a bit of it.

    most constructors would have covered it completely.

    it's really tough to see it during the day as the light reflects off the glass and all you can see are the reflections of the people looking down.

    qg.
    There are still reflections to avoid.
    Most noticeably, the strip lights from John Lewis.

    Thanks, but it's early days yet!

    Kev.
    I thought it has an outer space look, too.
    I almost posted this shot.

    Very good, Marky.
    I think it was Saturday that I noticed it for the first time.
    Now that I can stay on the bus past Lewis's I haven't had a chance to snap it, and I hadn't seen it from that viewpoint.

    Glad you all liked the photo of "man at work". It was too good a shot not to take. Fortunately the zoom on my Sony H9 enabled me to take it at a safe distance !!!

    What magnification is the H9?
    My H2 was 12, but it died on me, so I got the H3 which is 'only' 10.

    It's 15 times optical magnification with a Carl Zeiss lens, Philip. The model has been superseded by the H50 which has a slightly updated spec but not that you'd notice.

    Thanks, Taffy.
    I miss the H2 and might still get it repaired.

    Thank you Carole.
    I was walking down (or is it up?) North John Street, and one end landed right on top of the new John Lewis store.
    I looked left down Harrington Street and saw St Johns Tower like this, the other end of the rainbow.
