Goodness, what is that?
Interesting images. Can you tell your audience a little more about this site?
Do you think inanimate objects can be alone or together? I have not decided this in my own mind yet. Alone or together seems to me almost to insist on humanity - not sure if everyone will agree with this tho.
It is hard to shoot large memorials without people for scale - consider my thread for challenge 21 - I went back and reshot to capture some people on it even tho I did not submit those images for the final submission. But I wonder if you need something to help establish the scale here - these are obviously very large statues. Maybe a child sitting on the knees of one of the statues? Where are they tho?
They seem kind of mysterious. Kind of KLAATU BARADA NIKTO or something
for scale, that's my wife between the legs of the one on the right
I've got a lot to sort through from the trip, so i started to cherry pick the shots that caught my eye, but I have got a couple of pictures of them with my wife which I haven't uploaded yet. You can get an idea of the scale from the streetlights behind them in the first shot. There is no way you could sit on their laps though. The ankles weren't far off being waist level. Here are some details I picked up from here:-
"The newest landmark in Esbjerg -- also at the harbor -- has attracted a lot of attention, both from visitors and locals. Called "Esbjerg's new giants," they are four chalky white figures, the late Svend Wiig Hansen's enormous sculpture, "Man Meets the Sea," located at Sædding Strand, on a 150 sq. m (540 ft.) area of the shore opposite the fishing museum . These concrete figures, gazing out across the mysterious sea, are 79m (259 ft.) high. They sit upright like Greek columns. The four figures are completely alike, radiating a kind of classical beauty. The images evoke the massive monuments of ancient Egypt, perhaps something found in the Valley of the Kings."
