Scrap Metal Clown

By TrevBatWCC    
Working my way around the Hepworth Wakefield building, there's a footbridge that crosses the River Calder and leads to the gallery's entrance. Heading across the bridge to the far side is suspended this, the Scrap Metal Clown, which as its name suggests, is made out of various bits of scrap metal. Had to give him a Silly Sunday slot! 😁 Pity about all the clutter in the background, but his rear view in the last version taken from a few steps further on does isolate him better. He's been there several years, and now starting to look a bit worse for wear 😬

A shame he's looking a bit rough around the edges. Never mind, someone might be commissioned to make a copy of him with a brass band playing a moving rendition of 'Send in the Clones.' 🎼 🥴
Cracking images Trevor! All the best, G. 😀

Great captures, now that is inventive re-cycling, long may he last. One persons rubbish is another's inspiration to be creative.
