Tees-side silhouette

by davidtrout

My subject for this week's competition is public art. Here's my take on the subject taken on Saturday. It's the £2
million 'Temenos' by international sculptor Anish Kapoor which dominates the skyline high above the former Middlesborough docks between the world famous Transporter Bridge and Middleborough Football Ground.

Does it do anything to enhance the "ambience" of Middlesborough?

Lovely shot David, but I do wonder about the 2 million price tag, money well spent:

Great shot, David. I love Kapoor's work. Good juxtaposition with the transporter bridge behind.
Best wishes,

Andrew

I rather like this too - what a peculiar structure...

Very nice shot David - really like the lines and the juxta thingy Andrew mentions

I can not believe I travelled all the way To Middlesbrough last week to visit the transporter bridge and missed this entirely - doh!
