Scaffolding in front of St Pauls

 

What I like about scaffolding is that it seems to show the skeletons of the city. And London is always on the build. This view of St Pauls is through the skeleton of Paternoster Square. When I first came to London, Paternoster-Square-to -be was blocked up and invisible to the eye, and all the surrounding roads seemed rushed and tightly spaced. I ended up  working on the Square many years later and it is a pleasant (if pricey) pedestrianised area of the City now.
