From shadow to reflection.....


The first time I saw this intricate lacework sculpture it was sitting on Cottesloe Beach as part of the 2010 Sculptures by the Sea. It looked fabulous then with the sun glinting off it creating lacy shadows on the white sand. It now resides in a more 'lofty' position making silvery reflections in the water feature in front of the Art Gallery. As a matter of interest the beaches at Cottesloe were closed today, not for the usual shark alert reasons, but because the normally pristine white beaches were swamped in seaweed (check it out!), that's going to be a job and a half to clean up unless mother nature lends a helping hand! Hope you have a lovely weekend, take care and y'know...stay safe.

  2. What a pretty beach ball.
    Oi, 1 to 2.5 meter deep seaweed on the beach?? Squish, squish.

    I thought only Bondi area had Sculpture by the Sea. Glad to learn you have such a thing too. It is a wonderful event.

  5. What a beautiful sculpture - it's somehow sweet and elegant at the same time:) I can't believe the seaweed...a job and a half for sure! (I love 'job and a half', need to find a way to work it into my conversation today:) Hope your weekends off to a swimming start!

  7. It reminds me of a big Christmas ornament or something. Neat sculpture and very eye-catching for sure!

    PS: I also miss the CDP page. I know some people are on FB, but it's not private enough for me. I guess it's probably not coming back. :(

  15. Look at all that seaweed! That's what many of our beaches looked like for a spell this summer... and boy, does it start to stink after a very short while!

    I love the sculpture. I do think its placement in the water garden is more interesting, visually.

  24. The sculpture fits the scene really well. It looks organic, something that could float out of the sea.

  25. Cool sculpture. Curious it was moved to become part of a water feature. Which did you like better?
