  1. Reminds me of “Another Place” the piece of modern sculpture by Sir Antony Gormley located at Crosby Beach near Liverpool which consists of 100 cast iron figures facing towards the sea.

  2. Yes, I can see the likeness. It is interesting the effect of a freeze frame on some very busy seaside action. I would love to see the Crosby Beach installation. I once saw Gormley’s figures displayed in, on, and around the South Bank in London. The life-sized metal casts of his own body in such anomalous settings were amazing and rather spooky.

  3. That’s funny, John. I see what you mean. It is strange because the photograph is entirely unaltered – just as it happened – and everyone was having a really lovely time jumping up and down in the water, using body boards, playing ball, and it was a noisy happy scene in strong sunlight. The camera captured it all differently, and the backlighting made everything seem so dramatic.
