Anthony Gormley was in town today for the formal opening of his new artwork in the Water of Leith. Commissioned by the National Galleries of Scotland, the six life-sized iron figures are displayed along the popular walk way in Edinburgh.
This evening, I caught half of the project on my compact camera as I took a stroll in the wonderful evening sun. Other people were taking photos as well and I overheard a small girl say that she wanted a ‘funny man’ in her garden for herself. People walking dogs were commenting on how life like they were and others were asking me why they were there as I was taking photos.
You can read more about Anthony Gormley and I look forward to finding the other three pieces another day.
