Firstly, apologies for clicks only just recently. I have been staying with my daughter in Northampton, after she had an operation, but she required very little nursing so instead I transformed her jungle into something resembling a garden.

So, from Northampton, some versions of the Discovery Sculpture (the discovery of DNA), the Sir Francis Crick Memorial, by the artist Lucy Glendinning. I was there early morning, and the sun rose to reflect nicely upon the statues. The sky backgrounds are perfectly natural in these.

The memorial has 2 curved stainless steel structures with 2 life size figures with bold and abandoned postures springing from the 6-metre curved plinths which join the structure seamlessly.
The last version shows the whole of the structure. It was difficult to decide on a leader for these, but no doubt you will express your personal preferences.

The relation of the two forms alters depending on your viewpoint, which I have tried to depict here. It is all about the energy of attraction and repulsion.

Francis Crick was one of the greatest British scientists of the 20th century, born in Northampton, and who became involved in scientific research at Cambridge University where he unlocked the secret of life, the double helix structure of DNA. He later moved to California to study the human brain and consciousness in the field of neuroscience at the Salk Institute, and was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1962 and the Order Of Merit in 1991.

This is a fabulous set. Two things stand out - the wonderful contrast of warm and cold light, and the way the curves give energy and life to the figures. The UA is for the set as a whole, I won't express a preference as they work together (I love it when the multiple upload facility is used creatively).
Now I want to visit Northampton.

A wonderful statue and for shape and composition, v1 is by far the strongest for me, although the images are just as much about the colour and reflected light and they all win from that repsect. Excellent set. I wonder if the same person did the sculpture, The Three Graces, on the roof of the Criterion building at the top of the Haymarket in London.

How very interesting, and quite an elegant sculpture. I can't help feeling I'd rather see it somewhere other than a shopping centre though. I can imagine the difficulty in photographing such a structure though. I think you've done very well here.

It reminds me of the 'Diving Belle' sculpture next to the lighthouse at Scarborough (but it's not by the same sculptor), except that is just one figure. A super piece of work, and like the different angles you've captured this at, Pamela. Nice to see the whole, too, and it's environment in V5 Wink

MOIRA: I was thrilled to receive your User Award for my efforts on these sculptures.

DAVE: Having googled for the three synchronised divers, I can see why you might think it was the same artist, but the Three Graces Sculptures on top of the Criterion Building are by Rudy Weller.

JACK: Yes, I got some shots of the children, but wasn't too happy with them. Will have another go.
