Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

GoMA and the cone

You never know what you might have caught, and while clearing down some low-light trials found I had a half decent shot of Glasgow’s GoMA (Gallery of Modern Art).

What made it more interesting was catching the Duke of Wellington’s statue complete with its now famous traffic cone on top – it was just luck that it was backlit by the building’s illumination, between two of the massive pillars.

The cone’s repeated appearance became something of a local issue back in November, with various claims and counter-claims about plans to alter the statue’s mounting in order to curtail this prank, but when the draft proposal was found to be poorly drafted, the council instructed that it be withdrawn

It doesn’t take long for the cone to appear. I looked up earlier, on my way into the museum, and it wasn’t there, but as I headed home later, and grabbed some pics, I didn’t even notice it had returned… again.
