Today will see me taking a visit to Crosby Beach in Liverpool armed with 2 SLR digital Cameras, A digital Camcorder and a Super 8 Cine Camera.

The aim of the trip is to catalogue the experience and come away with as many images and moving film as possible.

I will be documenting 'Another Place' which is a permanent feature at Crosby Beach.

According to Antony Gormley, Another Place harnesses the ebb and flow of the tide to explore man's relationship with nature. He explains: The seaside is a good place to do this. Here time is tested by tide, architecture by the elements and the prevalence of sky seems to question the earth's substance. In this work human life is tested against planetary time. This sculpture exposes to light and time the nakedness of a particular and peculiar body. It is no hero, no ideal, just the industrially reproduced body of a middle-aged man trying to remain standing and trying to breathe, facing a horizon busy with ships moving materials and manufactured things around the planet.

Cameras are all charged and I am ready to rock and roll - check this post later for some of the results.

Here are some of the images I captured on the visit - it was very overcast and the lighting wasn't great but it was great to finally see them in situ!
