The Barbican Prawn - a metal sculpture that you either love or hate. I happen to love it. The sculpture is a combination of various fishy things, very apt for the Barbican.

Hi LM - I've spoken to some of the shopkeepers and the general consensus is that the Barbican locals mostly hate it!!

i think its great fun and the perfect lead to crossing over the bridge to the National Aquarium..

I've been trying for some time, on and off, to get a good shot of the NMA but can't seem to get the right pov to show off it's architecture to the best.

I've got what looks like a mediocre one in the to do list for the digital darkroom (along with maybe 50 or so others....)

Hi Harriet,

Thanks for the compliment :)

Which college / uni is it for?

Yeah, it'd be cool for you to use some of my Plymouth photos in your mag - the usual crediting of my work would be good. If it's web-based, you'll need to give a link to

Cheers, Mark
