river people

Sculptures are the norm in the city where I'm staying and house hunting, but fortunately, they're usually less eerie than this installation in the river.

I heard someone talking about being out for a late night walk and seeing these figures emerging from the river as he crossed over the pedestrian bridge.

I checked it out for myself the next morning, and I'm really glad I wasn't the one who first saw them late at night while out alone in the dark.

They were removed almost as quickly as they appeared, and we can only speculate as to whether that's because it was a limited time installation, or because people complained that they were scaring small children...
