Damn Dan, I'd hate to see what you call a Big Pickle!

My sister took this pic when my Mom visited her. Truth be told, I'd have guessed Paris cause of the 5 story older buildings mixed in w/ "skyscrapers".
I know Paris better than London. I'd read about the little Gherkin when it was being built, something about the shape reducing the wind tunnel effect on its surroundings.
