.... something beginning with 'S'. Spooks - No, I can't see any either! But I'm sure they're watching me.
Especially after someone tried to take out this building in Sept 2000 with a Russian-built RPG22 anti-tank missile.
The building, of course, is the MI6 Headquarters aka Legoland aka Babylon-on-Thames due to its resemblance to an ancient Babylonian ziggurat. It was built on the site of a glass factory, vinegar works and a gin distillery which probably accounts for the occupants fragile, sour and often pickled disposition.
MI (Military Intelligence) sections 1 - 4 and 7 - 19 became defunct (allegedly) along with the War Office.
MI5 became a successful TV series called Spooks and MI6.... well, it has some lovely views of the Thames.
Taken about 10minutes after my previous image, Iso400, f11, 1.3secs, 14mm, tripod and remote.
A big thanks to Carol (Humblebee), Stephen (NewDay) and Lin (Sweetpea62) for their UAs and all the kind comments by you folk on Knight On The Town. Very appreciated.
