The Lovers - Wincher's Stance, Glasgow by 


This is a close-up photograph of a sculpture called “Wincher’s Stance” located in the busy foyer of Buchanan Street Bus Station, Glasgow, Scotland, UK. Created by sculptor John Clinch (1934-2001), it shows a kissing couple. I don’t know whether they’re saying goodbye or hello but it’s clearly an emotional moment as the girl is shedding a tear. “Winch” is a Glaswegian term for “kiss.”
