365 Day 76 - Gloucester's newest sculpture

17 Mar 2014 4:24PM   Views : 404 Unique : 321

I suppose today being St Patrick's day, I should have chosen something with an Irish theme for my daily photograph but I have not. A trip into Gloucester this morning and as I wanted an opportunity to use my new lens, a wander round the docks as this always produces something.

I parked in the docs and walked back into town as I wanted to pop into LCE, passing on my way a newish pedestrianish area with a strange structure in the middle. When I say pedestrianish, that is because it looks like a pedestrian area, there are no pavements or crossings or lights, but cars, lorries, busses and people all seem to have priority at the same time so everybody has to depend on someone else being courteous, in Gloucester!!!

I was fascinated by the statue and was sure that there would be a plaque of some sort telling me who the sculptor was but no. There are what looks like lights in the pavement underneath which must produce an interesting sight when it is illuminated but as I don't venture into Gloucester at night I have never seen it lit.

I did get a couple of pictures in the docks old barges and boats being restored but they will need to wait for another day as I couldn't resist the sculpture.

Just googled this and it is apparently the 'Curly Wurly Tower' by artist Tom Price and is part of the regeneration of Gloucester. http://www.gloucestercitizen.co.uk/Curly-wurly-tower-Gloucester/story-11882530-detail/story.html

Gloucester appears to be a nice place, at least photographically, for a wander around.
Bit too far probably for a day visit for me, but worth remembering if I ever venture that way sometime.
