photoblog image The Southport Shrimp

The Southport Shrimp

On the promenade by the head of the pier in Southport stands this piece of scultpture, an homage to the simple Southport Shrimp. Once a great delicacy, sold in kiosks and shops as potted shrimps to the holidaymakers, it is rarely seen these days.

That's pretty neat with the pinkish colour in the sky and the pinkish colour to the copper. Very nice effect.

Mary has summed up my immediate reaction. Same range of colours in the subject and the background, and it works very well. (:o)
