Thankyou for your interest in The Shopper 1.
I found your comments very helpful.
I have been playing with several of the other images that I took of it - rotating, cropping, mirroring, etc.
Here are 4 versions of the same image, and I'd be interested in knowing which you favour.
This time they are all in colour as most of you preferred that.
This is part of a sculpture at the Henry Cort Sculpture Park in Fareham Centre, the pedestrianised area of West Street. The "puddled" wrought iron sculptures are themed on Farehamís market town history and the exhibition is the largest of its type in Britain, providing a unique and interesting thoroughfare.
The project commemorated the inventor of the "puddling" process for wrought iron and focused on combining the materials and techniques available prior to his death in 1800 with contemporary design.
