Another Blue Monday: A Blue Chicken

Blue Chicken

“Big blue cock erected on fourth plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square”

Here is another of my collection of blue photos for Sally’s Blue Monday challenge

This one I found on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square, originally intended for a statue of William the 4th on a horse, but remained bare for 150 years due to lack of funds.  In 1999 a sequence of three contemporary artworks were displayed, and the display was so successful that now the Plinth is to be used for the temporary display of artworks.  Currently a giant Blue Cockerel!

The statue received great reviews in the UK press with punning headlines such as “Big blue cock erected on fourth plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square”, “Boris Johnson in Trafalgar Square with a Massive Blue Cock And Disgruntled Woman” and “Boris Johnson unveils giant cock in Trafalgar Square”

    What a cheerful blue! Not always a welcoming sound in the early morning hours. But a natural alarm clock and beautiful in blue. Thank you for sharing.
