Shiny SeaShells On the Sea Shore!

I got some nice early morning shots of Maggi Hamblings sculpture on Aldeburgh beach t’other morning. It catches the morning light something lovely and goes through a whole range of metallic shades as it reflects the light. Supposedly a “controversial” sculpture it has built up a following of some pretty determined vandals, Vandalised 13 times so far, Personally I think it’s an asset to the location. Being a lover of the old sea food I’d love to see a real scallop that size. That’d give that bloke on Β Man Vs Food a run for his money eh!

  3. It’s really beautiful and if the vandals are caught (which they never are), I suggest immediate and harsh punishment of 20 years of community service.

    • They think its one particularly disgruntled local resident of Aldeburgh who objected to a man made object spoiling their view of the beach . . . but nothing proven so far πŸ™‚

  4. Nicely captured.

    Your “Benjamin Britten” tag made me laugh. I understand the Aldeburgh connection, but with your stated love of seafood I can’t help thinking of “Albert Herring.”

  5. What a wonderful sculpture! I particularly like the second and third shots – I like the space around the shell in the second but prefer the color and ‘clean’ horizon in the third.

    • Cheers! I love the way it reflects the changing light of the golden hours, seems to be different every day. Must try and see what a sunset does to it with the sea in the background.

  6. great low PoV, they look like they should be some sort of architectural structure rather than shells.

  9. Interesting sculpture! Vandals don’t appreciate art. Thanks for sharing and also for visiting my blog.
