Sculpture by the Sea

Dogs

Every year around this time one of the most famous suburbs of Sydney hosts Sculpture by the Sea. The exhibition is outdoors and runs the length of the Bondi to Bronte walk which is about 3km and hugs the side and tops of the cliffs and beaches which form the route. I visited on the last day and as expected it was ridiculously busy as everyone turned up at the last minute.

The subjects were pretty varied ranging from strange abstract shapes, to huge rocks wrapped in fabric, to something a little more identifiable such the dogs above. Unfortunately it was a bit of a dull cloudy day so the light was a bit flat. Because of this some photoshop work has been done to bring out the colours and there’s a bit of cropping too. Visit flickr for the full set.

Danks St Festival 2008

Footwear

Last Sunday (26th October) was the Danks St Festival in Waterloo. Danks St is know for is furniture, art, design and cafes/restaurants. The general vibe is all the cool kids coming down for food and to hang out listening to the music on the main stage or down at the DJ stage. Street photography is always a difficult one and you’re relying mainly on having interesting people to take photos of. There were a few things that stood out including footwear, hair and designer sunnies. I also stumbled into a light shop with some very funky light fittings.
