Its really become quite summery over our continent, with lots of scary bushfires raging across our state and country... The air was very thick with smoke for a lot of days here, with some forrest out of town burning quite badly for days! We even saw the helicopters with their big buckets of water flying over quite often to try and subdue the flames, which by the news kept jumping and expanding! Thankfully a good rain pour came down yesterday, which eased it all in our area...
I did just want to share a couple of pics from about town, from this week - Taken with my mobile, as they were unexpected shots... At our City Centre Mall they have just had a big revamp and made a big area upstairs for eating and relaxing, with lots of cool chairs and such, and also some sculptures and artwork!
So I wanted to share with you the wooden sculpture that floats over the escalators at the top of the area: A Whale that is yet to be named;
This piece of modern art is 8 meters long, weights 300 kilo's, and is made from wood and metal.
Our coastal city is known as a good vantage point to watch the migration of the whales during this time of year.
Here is another piece of Modern Sculpture art, that is on loan to the Mall, by the local Marine park who held a competition for local artists to decorate fiber-glass Dolphins -
This is the Sea Warrior dolphin - looking very Bionic I must say!
There were three other dolphins done by other artists, so I will share them here as well, but they are not my photos:
Aren't they stunning? I am just loving seeing sculptures and art throughout my town.
I hope you liked seeing them, too!
Thanks for stopping by.
