The Friday Project - Update

I know that for many of my regular readers, hardly a week goes by with out them thinking to themselves "I wonder if Chris is sticking to his new years resolution ?". So I thought it was about time for an update.

Well it has been a mixed bag: Friday was not the best day to choose, because its not unusual to have to sort out something in preparation for the weekend, so some days got missed. Combining that with loosing so much time to sickness in May, I don't have anywhere near as many shots as I would hope for so I am going to attack the project again with renewed vigour. On the plus side it really forces me to take pictures that I would otherwise not even thought about taking.

Last week I popped over to the South Bank to investigate the Anthony Gormley statues that have invaded the place. I must say that I really enjoyed the sculptures, its great to spend some time looking round for them trying to spot each one. Whilst I was there I observed many people being delighted & surprised as they discovered more and more of the sculptures.

Quite often there were 3 or 4 of the sculptures in view at anyone time which provides a whole new dimension to the cityscape, adding a human dimension to a view that can sometimes seem vast and soulless.

I'm not sure how long they will be staying on The South Bank but I hope that they stay for a long time.
