Crosby’s Another Place installation can look quite harsh from up close. The metal bodies spread along the tide line are covered in barnacles and hard in profile and presence. In this shot I decided to single out one statue and soften what was already a fairly soft image. The resultant image is easier on the eye, more restful to look at.
On my first visit to Crosby beach, last month I struck lucky with a wonderful sunset. The tide was out, which meant that I had wet sand for the foreground rather than water, but the results were pleasing nonetheless. I’ve put a couple of images together so that the scale of the installation can be seen better.
