Sculpture by the Sea

This is a great free event in Sydney that I enjoy checking out every year when it rolls around. The coastline from Bondi to Bronte beach provides a stunning backdrop for over 100 artworks by sculptors from around the world. It’s hard to photograph them all, so I’ve just included my favourites. I think the best ones make use of their surroundings seamlessly. Blending in to the rocks, sea, grass, sand looking as if they had always been there.
