Spirit of Corby


This is one of 10 photos I've taken for an exhibition at the camera club I go to. The photos were up for judging last week and I have been told that this was voted for by everyone.


It's a sculpture in the middle of the shopping centre. Just because I could I stood underneath it to take the shot. Most people take a side on photo because they haven't realised that there's a gate in the fence that surrounds it.


The scultpure is called "Spirit of Corby". Corby is a steeltown in the Midlands. It was famous for the steelworks that were here from the 1930s until the 1980s. There is a pipeline under the sea (known as Pluto) made from Corby Steel. The sculpture represents the molton steel as it is pored into moulds.
