Sculptures by the Sea with my iPhone


I never thought that the opportunity to see Sculptures by the Sea would arise this year, there was just too much going on that required my attention (and my budget). As it turns out, a trip to Sydney popped up and U was able to take my Dad on a tour of Tamarama and Bondi to view some in incredible art. Lacking my DSLR meant relying on my iPhone and lack of a laptop has me two finger typing this post on the iPhone WordPress app, so please excuse any typos 🙂

The day was spectacular, school kids and tourists were out in full force and everyone had some sort of camera, my photos will not be unique but I don’t care, I had a great time.

      Thank you TSL! I head back home today but so happy I got to see some of the sculptures. It will be amazing to see it as the sun rises, look forward to the photos 🙂

      Blogging by phone was surprisingly simple although not something I’d want to do all the time. Enjoy the exhibition.

    Happy to catch you today, Sam. Spotted you the other day but had even less time than usual. Knew I’d catch you eventually. These are superb!!! How inventive are these? The skeleton had me creased. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂

      Thanks Jo, glad you caught me, it has been busy of late and I’ve had little time to do more than short posts with lots of photos 🙂

    • twoblackdoggies October 27, 2013 / 2:31 pm

      PS: so glad you enjoyed the photos, the sculptures were fantastic and that skeleton had everyone intrigued 🙂

    Your phone takes great pictures! What imaginative sculptures – it must have been a fun experience… 🙂

    • twoblackdoggies October 27, 2013 / 2:35 pm

      Thanks Meg, it is a very handy phone to have and I’m glad you liked the sculptures. Seeing the exhibition was an unexpected pleasure and I had fun hanging out with my Dad too!

    We had a fun day too on Friday – loved the big glass orb – could watch it for hours:)

    • twoblackdoggies November 2, 2013 / 9:19 am

      A good day for seeing the sculptures, it must get crazy busy on the weekend because it was pretty popular when we were there. The glass orb is one of my favourites, amazing how much was reflected – must be magic when the sun rises 🙂

  7. Travel Spirit October 28, 2013 / 10:01 pm

    Very cool! My favorites are the reflecting marble, the skeleton and the stairs.

    • twoblackdoggies November 2, 2013 / 9:20 am

      I know, such a fantastic way to see art and I loved those ones as well although I’ve seen wonderful images of other amazing sculptures that we missed seeing.

    Hello, TBD. It’s been such a long while since I visited, you’ve changed your gravatar! I lost you from my list. That’s happened several times to me. I love these photos. They’re as good as a DSLR. The skeleton made me chuckle. I remember another post or two where you showed sculptures on the beach. It must be a thing there. I enjoyed these very much! 🙂

    • twoblackdoggies November 2, 2013 / 9:24 am

      Hi George, funny things have been happening with the blogs I follow as well and I know that it isn’t always a case of bloggers not posting. Great to see you back and glad you loved the photos, having an iPhone camera is better than none at all but I missed the ease in which I can zoom in and out on a DSLR without affecting the quality of the image. Sculptures on the beach are popular in Australia although I’ve only seen two festivals, this one in Sydney and the one at Currumbin – much of the art from the Currumbin Swell exhibition is permanently on display in different locations all over the Queensland Gold Coast.

    These are just awesome pics. The installations look amazing. We are going to visit Sculptures by the Sea next weekend. Hopefully take Roy along too.

    • twoblackdoggies November 4, 2013 / 9:29 pm

      Thank you! There are some talented artists out there and I’m sure that Roy would love to see the sculptures, we saw plenty of people there with their furry friends. Have fun 🙂
