These wonderful Iron men stand all along the Crosby shore line near to Blackpool, there are 100 of them spaced out on the beach, and in the sea.
each standing alone motionless on the flat coastal shore, braving the incoming tides, perhaps sometimes submerged, and seeing away the outgoing tides
We saw them last week in a howling gale storm, I have brightened the photo up a bit.
We went to see them as they are soon to be moved to America, after being on the continent, they keep being moved after a few years to a new home.a new country.
These 100 men life-cast statues are of Anthony Gromley who used his own body to make the casts, (which are all identical) he also made also the Angel of the North sculpture
hope you enjoy them

One of the better shots of this that I've seen. Do you know where in the States they will be located and when? -=Walter
