The Gherkin gets a wash by johnnyfrs

The Gherkin gets a wash

What a scorcher today, sorry for yet another architectural shot but I am in London, however I am sure you will agree how can you not love this building, it looks like cut glass.

It was either getting a wash or some other work being done, it looks like a windscreen wiper. Can you imagine having to clean these windows?

As always thank you so much for the fantastic comments, I do honestly read them all, I post this here to stop clogging up your notifications and it gives me more time to look at your pictures too.
If you want to know anything just ask I will reply to your questions, have a fantastic weekend everyone, you are all fabulous.
great shot John - glad I'm not their window cleaner!
