Tamarama, Sculpture by the Sea

>
This is my last look at Sculpture by the Sea, the outdoor sculpture exhibition that ran from 29th October to 15th November 2009. It was located on the two kilometre coastal walk from Bondi to Tamarama. These sculptures were located on the sandy beach at Tamarama. I'm most happy with photo of the rainbow artwork, where I managed to capture a glimpse of the beachgoers and flag in the gap. They almost look like they posed for the shot.

  16. Manang Kim, it's spring here now but the weather has been extremely hot this week around Australia, breaking all time records for November. Today it feels like the middle of summer in Sydney.

  17. These are fantastic shots. I love the sculptures and a great shot of the beautiful child.

  18. Good shots, and so different from mine of the same things. I couldn't get a clear shot of the rainbow one, too many people around. Your shots are at a different angle as well, obviously you are a lot taller than me, you look across at things I shoot up at.

  19. There are a lot of strange sculptures lurking around on that beach !!
    Great pictures, great sky, have a nice skywatch !!

  22. Yes Ann, I am tall. That's really observant of you. I'm 195cm or 6ft4in, in the old language. I think it's really interesting to see how different people's photos of the same subjects are.

  23. Wow Jim, I like the rainbow artwork it gives me a refreshing feeling! And who is that boy? LOL!

    ReplyDelete

  51. Carly and Lily Hydrangea, it's a sculpture, not an actual child.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love all the sculptures Jim. That boy is looking so cute.

  53. Thanks for the clarification. I didn't mean to offend you, and I understand the controversy.

    ReplyDelete
  54. No worries, Carly. For the benefit of others, I might just repeat the comment I left on Carly's blog. The last sculpture has actually caused some controversy in Sydney. The artist was originally asked to put speedos on his artwork but removed them on the second day. He defended his actions by saying that great artworks like the Statue of David or the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel by Michalengelo are not censored, so he should never have been asked to censor his sculpture. Most people agreed and apart from some media coverage, there were no problems after that.

  55. what a great idea, to have such an exhibition by the sea! looks so fun, and so coloured!

    ReplyDelete
  56. A great series. Having the sculptures displayed on the beach is such a different venue from those I'm accustomed to for viewing art work. I think it's great.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Fantastic shots. Art on the sea, a Festval of the senses. Manuela

  58. The second picture is amazing, I think I saw quite a similar one at BBC too, only there a few people were walking by that colorful sculpture.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I like those metal spheres by the stairs best. This is a good series of art.

    ReplyDelete
  60. What a great festival. I love the way the rainbow installation casts colors onto the sand, and wow that little boy sure looks real. I had to double and triple check before I was sure he wasn't!

    ReplyDelete

  73. I'm amazed every time I see these sculptures, they're extra extraordinary. Adding the little boy at the end is pure genius, the most amazing work of art of all, the human body.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Wow, sculpture at the beach, what a great idea! They are marvelous. My favorite is the first sculpture with waht looks like bamboo poles. Very cool.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Cool sculptures - looks like a very neat festival to experience. I have to admit that the kid sculpture seemed a little creepy to me but the others were very interesting!

  76. the statue of the boy look real, or is it? nice photographs you have here

    ReplyDelete
  77. Lindz, it's a sculpture which is titled 'Little Boy Lost' and it is actually larger than life. You can read a bit more about the controversy and the artist who rebelled against censorship in this Sydney Morning Herald article.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Those sculptures are great. And their placing by the sea is a great idea. The sculptures, the sea, the sand, the sky, and your ability to take a photo of them all, these things are making your photos special. I like them:-)

    ReplyDelete
  79. Great shots! And thanks for visiting my blog!

    ReplyDelete
  80. the artist is right you have a problem if you get offended .... it's in the beach not in the shopping centre ....
