They Shoot Horses, Don't They?

They Shoot Horses, Don't They? by Michael Trainor is a rotating ball 6m in diameter, covered in almost 47,000 mirrors and named after the 1969 film about a ballroom marathon.

It was installed in 2001 as part of the "Great Promenade Show" in Blackppol.

On the left it is reflecting the setting sun. On the right it is reflecting the lights of cars on New South Promenade.

A contribution to Weekend Reflections.

That's a nice subject of reflection indeed ; I like the blury effect : it makes it uncertain.
