London Shard tower keeps climbing to the sky

I’ve been keeping my beady eye on the ride of what will be Europe’s tallest skyscraper, although my view from Brixton is rather limited: I can only see the top of the thing!

Here’s how it looks as of the 3rd June 2011, with the floors slowly rising up to meet the top of the central core.

Here’s an overall view looking north from Brixton. To the left of the Shard is the distinctive outline of the Strata tower with its three built in turbines (I’ve yet to see them move, by the way).
