Sydney’s Sculpture by the Sea

Sydney’s ‘Sculpture by the Sea’ is a huge success every year, and 2016 was no exception.

Entries poured in from across the globe for the right to display artwork along Sydney’s famous Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk.

The crowds were huge and I visited with some friends and, of course my camera 🙂

My goal was to try and photograph the sculptures WITHOUT any people in them ~ very challenging, but I did manage to for quite a few photos.

This years winning entry was ‘Change Ahead’ by Johannes Pannekoek…

There were plenty of other sculptures to view and enjoy along the sensational coastal walk.

My favourite was the blue and white child ~ this was a very striking sculpture. She looked and felt very lonely on the clifftop overlooking the sea.

We thoroughly enjoyed all the other sculptures along the walk and finished up having lunch at The Bondi Icebergs Club overlooking the Beach!! Ah Bliss 🙂

Enjoy the photos.

Photo of the Day…All we are saying is give peace a chance….

The United Nations headquarters resides on international territory in New York City.

Representatives of the earths 7 billion people meet here to discuss and decide issues of international law, security, human rights, social justice and the achievement of world peace.

The Knotted Gun, or non violence symbol was designed by Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd. It was originally created as a memorial tribute to John Lennon and his vision about a world less violent.

This bronze sculpture of the knotted gun was placed outside the United Nations building in 1988.

It has been replicated at over 30 other destinations around the world and stands to remind us of the continual need to strive for peace and non violence.

It’s a fitting reminder isn’t it?
