The Lloyds Building in the City has been a long favourite for photographers, but thanks to the narrow streets in the City, it is difficult to get any general photos of the building from a distance.

Until now!

Thanks to the demolition of a nearby building, it is currently possible to get some good wide-angle shots of the building from a decent distance.

Difficult to get a clean shot due to building apparatus etc trying to block the views, but maybe worth a visit (and the inevitable Gherkin is nearby).

Despite commenting on how difficult it is to get wide-view photos, I am quite pleased with the below photo I took just over a year ago, of the building reflected in its new neighbour, the Willis Building.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    the willis photo is a lovely image–even if it does give a bit of vertigo from the movement
