I absolutely adore this building! Is this "real", I mean, is it a collage? I have to look for this place and this angle! Great shot!

Hi Zyky. Thank you so much for your lovely comment. Yes this is a real shot not a collage.
I found the contrast so beautiful at this point of view.

This building is called The Gherkin or Suisse Re Marco!
It is not Lloyds of London ~ sorry ~ Ciao nick
This is to help you:
30 St Mary Axe, also known as the Gherkin and the Swiss Re Building, is a skyscraper in London's main financial district, the City of London, completed in December 2003 and opened on 28 April 2004. It is 180 metres (591 ft) tall, with 40 floors. Its construction symbolised the start of a new high-rise construction boom in London.
The building was designed by Lord Foster, his then partner Ken Shuttleworth, and Arup engineers, and was constructed by Skanska of Sweden in 2001–2004.
