PHOTO – Anthony Gormley, Water of Leith

Anthony Gormley

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.
