The annual outdoor display of sculptures is on again in Sydney. With artworks dotted for 2km along the coast from Tamarama Beach to Bondi Beach, this free two-week event is hugely popular.

There are over 100 artworks on display — but don’t worry, I didn’t photograph every one. 😉

These “sculptures” were created by Mother Nature — eroded sandstone.

A few other things that caught my eye

I deliberately took a day off work so I could avoid the crazy crowds on a weekend, but look at all the people on the path! I’ve put this post in my Strolls around Sydney category because, believe me, a strolling pace is as fast as it’s possible to move.

It’s important to stay hydrated and safe in the Sydney sun (when the sun actually shines, that is — it’s been very wet here for the past few days!). There was free water …

… and free sunscreen.

And someone has to keep the artworks looking clean!

Keeping it clean.

Keeping it clean.

    • Interesting — those men seem to be his “thing”. There six or so men on balls in this exhibit. The boys are indeed spooky! I kept expecting them to blink. Sydney is not so gorgeous at the moment, the weather is dismal — but there would be no crowds for the sculptures today! 😉

  1. Ive been trying to do a dawn shoot all week down there but it is just too wet and windy for me. Tomorrow is forecast clear, so hopefully I can get down there in the morning. Great photos from you. I particulary like faces as I am an artist and can sketch them too.
