  2. Well that guy with his head (and whole body) in the clouds is perfect for Skywatch. And really a perfect shot any day. Thanks for sharing. I like him!

  10. Nice sculpture. I am curious how the artist came to that name for this statue or is the guy always in the sky ?

  11. Simply nice. A good idea to place that sculpture there. At least you won't be lonely when you're enjoying the view alone. :)
    Well done Jim!

  14. Wow! Nice collection of beautiful art photos. I went to Ausrlaria two times, first stayed at Rose bay in Sydney five years ago, second trekking mountains in Tasumania island three years ago. Both tours were very good for me.

  17. Great shots of this beautiful statue.
    It shouldn't be hard to be optimistic with such a blue sky.
    Enjoy your weekend, Jim.
