Sculpture by the Sea 2011

Not so many words today, but lots of images to celebrate the 15th year of Sculpture by the Sea, one of my favourite Sydney events. It’s held along the clifftop top walk between Bondi and Tamarama beaches, (one of my writing with a view a spots). This year, not only did I enjoy the artworks, but had the pleasure of watching some whales cruising southward, heading back home after their breeding season up north.

I definitely recommend a visit to this fabulous exhibition, but go early in the morning for fewer crowds and wonderful light and beware the local joggers who seem very indignant about having to share their path.

Here’s a selection of the 109 sculptures on display.

  1. Enjoyed seeing your photos, I went for a walk there this week too, a welcome return after missing about 8 or 9 years worth. My neighbour and I headed over the Bridge and really enjoyed a slow potter from Bronte to Bondi and then a fast walk back. Am in love with the ammonite and the moebius, so seeing the pieces again here is a delight.
