Another Place

I've had a rather lovely bank holiday weekend. Out on Saturday night, friend's party on Sunday night, picnic on Monday and yesterday I went to Crosby Beach with Scott to see Another Place by Anthony Gormley. There are 100 identical cast iron figures scattered about on Crosby Beach. Some are sometimes totally submerged underwater as the tide comes in. As you can see from my photos, the tide was really far in so we could only see a few. Other times, you can walk alongside them and sometimes people even dress them up in old clothes! I really love them, I've been to see them a few times. It was unbelievably windy but luckily I had my heart shaped sunglasses to protect my eyes from the sand (the beach has very soft sand that blows everywhere!).

  12. I bet those figures are amazing to see, but I'm guessing if someone didn't expect to see them, they'd be quite eerie too. Thanks for posting the link, I shall check it out.

  24. I love this project! Wasn't it in London for a time too? Around 2006/07? I used to walk across Waterloo bridge and there was one there, along with some on the roof of the national theatre etc looking like people about to jump.
    So interesting.
    And a lovely outfit, as always! Love the colours.
