Title • sentinel #1

I went down to Crosby yesterday evening (just north of Liverpool) and we set a new record for northwest photoblogging as there was six of us; myself, John, Paul, Steve, Ioannis and Jessy. Hopefully, between us, we should have managed to get a few decent shots.

This shot, and the next two, are shots of Anthony Gormley's Another Place, an installation of 100 iron, life-size figures along a 3km stretch of the coast. And if you're wondering about the sky: I did try a more natural looking shot, but I just couldn't get the balance between the figure and the sky looking right, hence the colourisation.

And I don't know if anyone else will experience this shot in the same way as me but it looks as though the sky is moving behind the sculpture, particularly on the left side of the image, and especially if you focus on his right ear (your left). Either that or I'm over-tired ;-)

On another note: chromasia will be on auto-pilot from first thing tomorrow morning until Tuesday as I'm down in Southend for a few days. Fortunately I managed to take just enough shots yesterday evening to keep things ticking over, but I'll have to take something while I'm away to cover Tuesday's slot.

And finally: thanks for all the kind words on yesterday's entry – we live in dark times.

Update: chromasia won't be on autopilot as 'future posting' seems to have stopped working – the database updates, and MT reckons that the entry has been published, but none of the relevant pages get rebuilt. So, I'll still manage to get things posted but the times at which they go up may vary.
