This is the view from my office kitchen back when I had that real job (before I gave it all up to do this instead). The sun is rising over the city, with the Docklands towers just visible, pale in the distance between the Barbican towers.
The street in the foreground is Mount Pleasant. You can just see the Rosebury Avenue viaduct between the houses left of centre. Just poking into shot on the left is Mount Pleasant sorting office, the central hub of the London sorting offices.
