High Tide behind Water Wings

This a follow up post from Sunset behind Water Wings.

Water Wings by Bruce Williams is one of the installations for the Great Promenade Show. It was designed to be viewed in motion from the adjacent tram track and road, the photographic image of a swimming child laser cut into an 8m long curved stainless steel screen gradually resolves and disappears again as the viewer moves past.

One commentator wondered what was behind it. The answer is the sea. Around it is the promenade and in front of it is the tram line and the main road is front of that.

You can see it in the fifth photograph of my post back in April 2013.

This and the earlier image were taken in June 2013.

The coloured original of this photograph can be seen on Geograph.

A contribution to The Weekend in Black and White.


  1. Looks a fascinating installation. It must be very interesting to see it "in motion."

  2. Lovely b&w composition!
