Tamarama, Sculpture by the Sea

Sculpture by the Sea is the world's largest annual free public outdoor sculpture exhibition. It is located on the two kilometre coastal walk from Bondi through Tamarama to Bronte. The 13th annual exhibition runs from 29th October to 15th November 2009. My favourite sculptures are the ones that have the sky and sea as a spectacular backdrop.

  63. Ann, I went last Monday afternoon which was a pefect day and there weren't as many people as the weekends. There were still surprisingly a lot of people around but I was patient and waited around for quieter moments to get the shots right. After schools let the kids out, it got really busy though.
