Brick Stack

We visited Crosby Beach near to Liverpool on a bright sunny day to see Antony Gormley's installation called "Another Place" - a scattering of life size iron men wistfully gazing out to sea. Crosby Beach is a stark windswept place with a wind farm off shore and Liverpool docks close by making for a dramatic - alomost lonely setting - for the figures. As we strolled back to the car we came across a large bank of bricks, I guess from a demolished building - or perhaps they had been dumped there as a shore break to protect from erosion by the waves. Anyway the bricks were rounded and clourful and eroded into interesting shapes and were just begging to be made into a stack.
