Sculpture by the Sea, Part 2

The famous Bondi Icebergs Club building, shown with the salt water pool (lower left) that members go for a swim especially during winters (hence the name Icebergs! Crazy...). Splashed on the building, the "Sculpture by the Sea" event.

I can't help but publishing a part 2, all good things are serialised anyway. It's just such a waste not to publish these pictures of notable sculptures. I am sure I am not the only one taking pictures that day, but just to share it with those who were unfortunate not to see them in their grandeur settings.






Unfortunately I did not bought the guide to go with the tour (such a cheapskate am I not?). Hence, I can not relate to you the name of the artist and the title of their work (associated with number plates with the sculpture). But you can download here an audio commentary.

The first on the left hand side, instead of taking the photo with Bondi beach as background, I took it against the grey skies looming. I saturated the colours using a basic photo editing software to get that effect (if you can call it that.... Heheheee). While the one the right was taken with no flash, just available light. Obviously, putting a fill-in flash would inevitably destroy the depth and play of shadows. I seldom use one except for portrait pictures.
Part of the crowd of "art aficionados".
Background are the multi-million dollar flats and housing with water views of Bondi beach.
