Last weekend for Bondi sculpture walk

Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi, finishes this Sunday 9th November. So it’s your last chance to see the exhibits, the work of 109 artists.

We visited the exhibition this week, together with some friends from New Zealand. As my girlfriend and I wanted to photograph the sculptures at dawn, we decided to stay overnight in Bondi. We booked a two-bedroom apartment at the Adina. Located in Hall Street, it was only a few mintues’ walk to Bondi Beach, and proved the ideal location, with restaurants and cafes close by.

Although the sunrise wasn’t spectacular, the sculptures took on ethereal glow in the soft morning light, offering a different photographic perspective to the harsh sunlight later in the day.

We visited the exhibition on Thursday evening and again on Friday morning and were devastated to see one of the exhibits, the boot pool by Ian Swift, had been damaged overnight, presumably by someone standing on it.

If you are heading to the exhibition I suggest you go as early as possible as it can get congested during the middle of the day.
