Although I whinge about my job from time to time, really I am very lucky and I do get to do very cool stuff. Today, between 3pm and 8pm I was allowed to hang around a place very few people get to hang around - the very VERY top of the Gherkin (and I mean the top - check this out http://instagr.am/p/KIRC8YgiW_/
I was armed with a Huge Canon EOS 5D and massive 24-105mm lens, and was tasked with taking pictures of an event (both the set-up and the event itself) which was being held on the 40th floor. It was ace. I got to play with a really fancy camera, see INCREDIBLE views, eat teeny tiny mini hamburgers, drink champagne and see how the other half live.
At the moment i only have access to my iPhone shots, because I don't have a card reader for the proper big DSLR. But there will be more tomorrow.
