The speed of change to the London skyline is both constant and fast. This clear view of St Pauls Cathedral from above the corner of Cheapside and Wood Street only appeared for a short time: Demolition on the south side of Cheapside first revealed it - only for the development that followed to promptly drop the curtain again.

While it lasted though, the contrast between the shiny new 21st century glass and the 350 year old stone edifice of Wren's masterpiece (that prompted the making of the image in the first place) was quite marked.
