Sculpture by the Sea 2014

Each year, along a beach-side walkway near where I live, there is an exhibition called Sculpture by the Sea.  It always attracts a huge crowd during the two weeks and the usual walkers and joggers get very upset that they don’t have the walkway to themselves.

Last Friday evening my work colleagues and I decided to enjoy a walk at dusk to see the sculptures and to share a picnic and a glass or two of bubbles as well.

I tried out my relatively new camera, not altogether successfully as the light was fading.  I seem to have lost the catalogue, but if I find it I will add the name of the sculptor to the relevant photo.  These are just a few that I liked – there are usually more than 100 outdoor exhibits and a similar number in an indoor pavillion.  Sculptors from around the world exhibit each year.  The works are for sale and the public can vote for their favourite.

  1. Thanks – I have a new camera and haven’t had time to read the 240 page manual so still doing trial and error. I am learning that light is the key! Just don’t know yet how to use it properly.
