Sculpture By The Sea :: Part One

Living at Tamarama has many perks. Firstly, I get to enjoy the coastal and the city lifestyle. Secondly, I can surf on a daily basis. And thirdly, Tamarama is the host of the annual Sculpture By The Sea art exhibition.

Everytime I go for a run, surf or just wander down to the beach, I get to walk past these amazing pieces of art just sitting there on the coastal headland between Bondi and Tamarama. Seriously, how good is that!?!

There are over 100 different pieces of art featured at Sculpture By The Sea, and I'm yet to photograph them all. But here are a few of my fave's so far.

If you haven't already had a chance to check it out, you've got until Sunday 4th November. Hot tip: I'd advise going before and after work, because on the weekends the trail gets some serious pavement traffic.

Chaos at the Sydney Seafood Markets

I've never been a big fan of the ultra-touristy locations. Especially in the city which I grew up in. However when Nat threw it out there, that we should head down to the Sydney Fish Markets for some fresh sashimi for lunch, she had me hook, line and sinker!

The place (as you can imagine) was pure chaos, with tourists, sydneysiders, fishermen and fishy merchants crammed in together like a mosh pit at Big Day Out. There were even seagulls swooping down, mid air and snatching chips off peoples plates while they were trying to find a seat...

Nevertheless it was a great experience, and an even greater people watching expedition. If you like your seafood and don't mind a crowd, you'll love this place.

Here are a few shots from the Sydney Fish Markets.
