Sculpture by the Sea 2013

In 2012 James and I went to see the sculptures by Bondi Beach. We went in 2013. It took me ages to finally get around to these photos (they’re a couple of months old), but here they (finally) are! Last time we made every effort to take a photo of all the sculptures. We missed some this time, and I didn’t get as many photos, but I am sharing all the good ones.

Better late than never right? 😆 Also be sure to check out my previous post A Day in the Life, a monthly linkup started by Manda, where bloggers document a day in their life, once a month. Looking forward to seeing more people take part. 🙂

Wow I am really amazed by most of them! As I was going down the post and through all of them I would find one that I really loved then a few images down I would find another then another and I would forget the first ones. All in all the “Flow” was the one I liked the most. Weird since it is just pop bottle caps and plastic ties but it’s just really neat. And ‘diminish and ascend’ kinda scared me, seems like something that would be in a horror movie. But still cool.

I remember your entry about this in 2012 🙂 I loved looking through all the different sculptures in your photos. My favorites are “a shared weight”, “flow”, “once removed”, “diminish and ascend”, and “east of the mulberry tree”. “once removed” especially stands out to me for some reason. I think it’s the simplicity of it and it has kind of an eerie feel. I wish we had events like this here in my city!

Wow I can’t believe how many people are there! That’s insane! I bet these must be even more incredible in person.

That place is amazing! I think the “horizon” and the bottlecap one are my favourites.
