Moore Park, Kippax Lake (Watery Wednesday)

This fountain and sculpture in the middle of Kippax Lake at Moore Park was dedicated to Australian sportswomen in 1967. It was designed by Diana Hunt and constructed in metal on a concrete base. Kippax Lake was named after William Kippax, a Sydney City Council Alderman.

  7. Interesting sculpture. What I love about water is that the reflections always pick up such nice colors, just like in your shot. :-)

  8. I like this photo, and I like the idea of what it represents. It's nice to know there's a sculpture there that honors sportswomen.
