Skywatch Friday: They Shoot Horses Don't They?
They Shoot Horses, Don't They?
No don't laugh — that is the actual title of this sculpture on the South Promenade at Blackpool.
Created by artist Michael Trainor and erected in October 2002, it was at that time the world's largest mirror ball, 20ft in diameter and weighing 4.5 tonnes.
I first spotted it a day or so earlier from the South Pier, looking across the sands and past the Pleasure Beach. I didn't at that stage know what it was nor anything about it.
