Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

My archives have taken me to the beautiful, old city of Lincoln. If you should ever visit the U.K., Lincoln is definitely worth placing on your agenda.

My photograph, this morning, shows the dramatic sculpture called 'Empowerment'.

Empowerment is a public sculpture in the centre of the city of Lincoln. It was designed by the artist Stephen Broadbent, sponsored by Alstom Power (now Siemens), and completed in 2002. The sculpture spans the River Witham in Lincoln's City Square.

It takes the form of two aluminium-and-steel human figures reaching to each other across the water. The design is intended to echo the shape of turbine blades, in recognition of Lincoln's industrial heritage.

At 16 metres tall, 'Empowerment' is the largest sculpture in Lincolnshire. Increasingly, it is used alongside more traditional images of Lincoln the cathedral and castle as a recognisable 'tourist emblem' of the city, similar to the adoption of the Angel of the North as a symbol of North East England. From Wikipedia

My photograph was taken from an old bridge, which spans the river. I will add a workshop photograph from the riverside to explain the situation of the sculpture.

Have a great week, Bev :-)
