Sculpture Trail   Leave a comment

Friday, 7 November, 2014

Up very early to drive over to the eastern suburbs of Sydney and the beach of Tamarama. Arrived just after the crack of dawn to witness the sun popping up above the sea off the coast and throwing its first light on the sculptures I’d come to see.

Sculptures by the Sea is a popular annual event where artists are invited to create and display their works along the 1.2km Bondi to Tamarama Coastal Walk. It generally runs for a period over three weekends in late October/early November and this year there were over one hundred sculptures of varying shapes and sizes dotted along the coast.

A couple of years ago I took a look at the artwork on a weekend with Kerry, Christina, James and Donald on James’s last full day in Australia before he flew back to the UK. The only problem on that day, was the thousands of other people vying to take a look at the sculptures at the same time. Lesson learnt and so this year I drove up to Sydney last night after work with the intention of avoiding the crowds. The good thing about being up so early is that you see places in a different light and this makes for great photgraphy. I was also amazed to see Bondi beach so empty and was kicking myself for not bring my swimming trunks along so that I could take a dip in the famous Bondi Iceberg pools.

Never mind, there’s always next year!
