Sculpture by the Sea 2013

Sydney’s annual free sculpture display runs along the coast from Bondi Beach to Tamarama Beach. The exhibits range from wacky to wonderful, from weird to whimsical. But there’s always something to make me pull out my camera! (And I go every year, which I guess makes it a habit.)

      Well, some are on the clifftops! For a few weeks each year, they give a new spin to a very familiar coastal walk. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. How wonderful, my son posted a few of the exhibits last year on his Facebook page, but he is alas no photographer. These shots are magnificent Elizabeth. I particularly like the composition with the two boys. Thanks for posting these!
