I saw this at Leith docks and zoomed to snap a picture, not sure but guessing it could be an Anthony Gormley and also not sure if the seagull was part of it or not……… 🙂
We couldn’t walk any closer by the looks of the rickety construction in between ……. I like the tension of the figure standing there endlessly gazing out over the water (whatever the weather I presume)
(I did some checking up and no, the seagull was just passing by (as many others had also done by appearance!)….I found out that this is one of six figures installed between the Scottish National Gallery and the sea from a 2010 commission.)
This is the Scott Monument in the winter season when it gets a bit crowded out by the winter fair. It still manages to hold on to a little dignity despite always looking as though it could do with a bit of a clean……
Arthur’s Seat always looks like an elephant to me lurking on the horizon solid and tame…this was taken from across the meadows where I spent a lot of time walking to and from school but probably, at that time, didn’t take much more than a glance at the backdrop…..
