Steve and I ended up on a very cold and windy Crosby Beach on saturday - but we were both on a cliché avoidance mission, so were determined to do something we'd not seen before with the statue.
We've all seen and taken fantastic sunset shots with the statue refelcted in the sand, so why bother reinventing a wheel when you can try crafting a littel different?
Anyway, this is me running around on the sand as Steve hit my remote release to capture lots of me.
I've left most of the big me's off as they mask the little mes.
Lots of work in photoshop here, so hope someone likes it!

I like it!! a lot
It`s amazing what photographers do...I thought they were posts on the thumbnail...must wear my glasses more often.
Extremely clever work this should do well my friend, lots of effort and ingenuity.
When do you try it at night?
Un-cliche like take - worth a click.
LOL! Love it!
A different take on the Gormley's - Also humour on ephoto something we don't see enough of (I'm as guilty as anyone). well done Ade.
This is why I was thinking of taking a tripod on Saturday - just the Gorillapod.
Maybe do it at a bar, have several of one of us sat talking at the bar to each other
I do, works very well and is very effective too
Excellent stuff, love it
Love it Ade
LOL and it works well
Top marks for trying something completely different Ade. I much prefer this, much more fun!
Aha so it worked well then! Really like the result, time well spent and noses well frozen!
Not done mine yet, saving it for a rainy day!
Lol, and I thought I was barking mad but evidently I have much to learn Oh Master
Very clever and a giggle too .....
I'm sorry but if Steve hit the remote release then surely this is his shot and not yours, since he was the photographer - poor form claiming someone elses work

picky or what
we both set the shots up on our own cameras, then go the other to hit the cable release when we said "now".
so cheers for this one Steve i'll take credit, and you can take credit for yours.... which I took... err
Great image - looks like you had fun doing it
Great fun and very clever work. Way beyond me but it looks tiring so I am off to bed!
Awesome shot and idea!
Like it Ade - fun too.
i know a good therapist, ill send you his number
Love it - great to see something different from this spot.
It's given me an idea thank you.
Well it's definitely different!
Well avoided sir!
Great stuff. I like the impression that you're entertaining the statue rather than the opposite... maybe even more so if you were posed more towards the statue than the camera, but I guess that's only my reading of the image anyway! Like it a lot. Tommy
ha ha very good work, its yours claim it crikey all those great togs had many assistants working with them, its the brain that makes the pic not just the person who touches a button ..much more has gone into this than clicking a remote
This is a real gem. Especial credit for the blurred moving Ades and the Ades pointing at other Ades.
You could do a whole series of these, performing different activities in front of the statue (reading to it, worshiping it, sitting on a deckchair ignoring it, ...) and paying homage to famous photographs (the Abbey Road cover, Behind the Gare St Lazare, Capa's shots of the Normandy landings, ...).
Right, that should keep you busy for a few months. Get to it!
Ironic comment on Gormley's use of repetition.
Lol! Brilliant! Goodness knows what folks thought, when they saw you doing this! It is good to see something different...............and this is definitely 'something different'!
Great work! No cliche here. Must have been a lot of fun taking this picture (and lots of Photoshopwork too )
I forgot to claim this one! It's not like I have an abundance of them myself!
It sure was fun, and was it really that long ago!
I've photographed the Gormley Statues a couple of times and it's refreshing to see someone use a bit of imagination for a change. Excellent work and very well processed. The votes speak for themselves...
