thanks joce,its not capetown is it!

j. adamson on February 28, 2008

No, but the water is probably just as cold!

What a beautiful view of your coastline, steandeb! I looked at it in original size and discovered 2 'illuminated men'. Nice to see them together in their surroundings! Greetings, Anne

good spot anne! another user commented on trying to get the other statues in shot,there are 100 hundred of them spread out over the beach you know.i need to get a better camera,with a good zoom!

j. adamson on February 29, 2008

Do you photograph a different one each time? Perhaps you should name them so we know who you're photographing! Are you serious about the 100?

steandeb on February 29, 2008

hi joce, yes there are 100 of them spread out over 3km of the beach,each one is tagged with a number on there wrist,this one is no.99!thanks for the kind words.the weather is foul here in liverpool at the moment so this weekend looks like drawing a blank on the beach. we have just had an earthquake in the u.k this week 5.2 on the richter, i might just have to nip down the beach and make sure none of the iron men have cracked and floated of to sea! have a great weekend,steve!

steandeb on February 29, 2008

joce i will up load a photo for you with the tag clearly visible!

j. adamson on February 29, 2008

99 sounds like a lame spy name out of a very bad seventies comedy. (Damn, giving away my age!) I didn't know the UK had earthquakes. That's quite a tremor. Has it caused much damage? I feel like I'm living in a vacuum.

Thanks for showing us more of the waterfront.

steandeb on March 1, 2008

thanks ralph

no damage where i live but the epicenter was in the midlands,and there was some pockets of structural damge, no one died though,so we were lucky really,i hope to holiday in california in 2009 so i may get to experience a real earthquake!

I never understood why people would choose to live on a fault line???

steandeb on March 3, 2008

i know ,but the world is so over populated.i remember reading an article whilst on holiday in florida last year when they were on hurricane alert,it basically said that florida was never meant to be inhabited by humans,its natural geography and position to the gulf stream made it an obvious target for one of natures most destructive forces.i suppose lots of people have to live in dangerous places ,lots of people live below sea level,as in new orleans etc.you have to be thankful if you live somewhere safe not only from natures forces but also from the ever increasing threat from us humans!

j. adamson on March 4, 2008

I should talk, I suppose. I live in a country with a really high crime rate. You're right the threat is from humans!

steandeb on March 4, 2008

you live in a very beautiful country!i must visit capetown in my lifetime and see table mountain ,it looks a great place. when you live in a city like i do i constantly yearn to escape to the beach ,or walk along the canal,or walk in the woods.you are getting away from hustle and bustle that city life creates,i am quite lucky where i live because i can be at all them places in less than 10 minutes as you probably detected from my photos! have a good day and thanks for visiting.
