I must say I am also not overwelmed with the scallop but it is special.

Looks a fun sculpture, and I bet it is a bit musical with the wind blowing

It's amazing where art originates in the minds eye. Who would think corrugated metal could be more than roofing. Very unusual.
Also loved your siting of the swan, you know how special they are to me as memory of my departed sister.
Thanks for sharing her gracefulness.

I can't quite decide if I like it or not. It is different, and in many ways special. Your photographic essay is wonderful.

I love scallops (fried....with a baked potato... :)) )
and I love your photography of this sculpture. I can understand why some wouldn't like it. I don't think I would like to see it on the beach every day.

I must admit the sculpture is great for a one off visit but I wouldn't want to see it there every day. Having said that you have taken some great shots of it I especially like the sunset one, beautiful.
