Stockman’s Plinth Innings

Wowing the crowdIt was a tremendous giggle to go and see my mate Martin Stockman strut his stuff on Anthony Gormley’s fourth plinth as part of the β€˜One and Other’ project.

Dressed in cricket whites, resplendent in team blazer and cap he read his own poems (some with a cricket theme) and also lyrics from Roxy Music and Amy Winehouse, Martin shouted himself hoarse and also managed a magnificent catch from the crowd. Being rather more of a showman than many other plinthers he drew a decent audience and admirers.

All good fun. The rest of my pics are on Flickr. They’re still accepting applications… I could be tempted.
