photoblog image The Sea Circle

The Sea Circle


The Sea Circle was made by the sculpter Charlotte Meyer and dates from 1984, it was originally sited within the Garden Festival site. It is a rendition of an ammonite shell, a species now extinct from our seas and is cleverly cut from one sheet of metal twisted through 90 degrees. It was moved to its present position at the junction of Seymour Terrace and Copperas Hill when the festival site was closed down.

Seymour Terrace is a set of three-storied Georgian style houses that have recently been restored and converted into offices.

This could be called "the snail" as well. Very nicely captured Les
Les Auld: Inddeed so Richard, one that is shedding his shell, thanks for the comment.
Most unusual Les, compostion is great and you've done something nice to the colours which I like.
Les Auld: Thanks Brian, the background has been desaturated a touch to give more life to the sculpture.

Great shot Les. That looks an impressive sculpture. Pity the houses weren't restored as houses..but I suppose you can't have everything.
Les Auld: In the scale of things Bill it is really quite small, the angle of view elps change this though. Thanks for the comment.
Is to me strange the treatment, but simultaneously very pleasant. It seems something old!
Les Auld: Thanks Jose, the statue has been saturated a touch whilst the background was desaturated, just trying things out. Thanks for the comment.

We LOVE Georgian architecture. A couple who are friends of ours own a stunning 4 storey over basement in Dublin city centre, which is their home. It's taken them 15 years and a LOT of money to restore it, but it is simply magnificent.
Les Auld: There are quite few Georgian terraces in Liverpool, many have been refurbished but there is still some way to go, thanks for the comment Dave.
Awesome art work really !
Les Auld: Thanks Zeb, interesting shape indeed.
