Sculptures by the Sea 2019

Each year in Bondi Australia, there is an exhibition of sculptures, which because of their proximity to the ocean, is called Sculptures By the Sea. Here is a selection of photos that I took of some of the bizarre sculptures presented.

Sunrise at Maroubra Beach

I just realised that I neglected to post photos from 2 shoots recently.

This Sunrise was taken a few weeks ago on Maroubra beach, in Sydney. I hope you enjoy

All That Glitters

I don’t know why I continue to fish here. Unless I do a really good cast, my hook will scrape across the submerged rocks, and get caught, I will try to whip the line to get it free. Not often successful.

Today after I cast, I feel some weight, but dead weight, some seaweed, not a fish. I wind in the line. The hook doesn’t catch on the rock. A glint reflects in the water as I reel the last bit of line in. It’s a gold watch, still in place on what remains of a man’s arm.

Sculptures By the Sea 2015

For two weeks the cliffs between Bondi and Tamarama beaches are covered in large sculptures. For these two weeks, just about every morning I have gotten out of bed early to beat the crowds of people and anklebiters on school excursions to take some photos. Also for the last two weeks it has been wet, windy and miserable for most of these mornings. Some mornings, I poked my head out from the covers and promptly turned over, others I made it out of my front door before abandoning my mission. Finally, yesterday, everything was in order… The planets were aligned so to speak, I rose at 4:30am and after a light breakfast, I drove to the beach and got there as the sun was rising.  I beat most of the crowds, but not the flies, and took some wonderful photos.

I hope you enjoy them.

More images from Sculptures by the Sea

Sculptures by the Sea is an annual event held in Sydney Australia where sculptors are invited to exhibit their pieces along the clifftop walk between the iconic Bondi Beach and Tamarama beach, with others actually on Tamarama beach and in the park surrounding.

Here is a small selection of the 240 photos I took of some of the sculptures lining the clifftop.

Enjoy
