Love


Last weekend at an unfamiliar beach, exploring, I was crouching down taking shots close to the water and a young couple walked into my shot. Makes for a cute reflection doesn't it?




One for Weekend Reflections.
Have a good one,
Val.

Sculpture by the Sea Bondi 2017


If you ever come to Sydney there's a famous sea side walk from Bondi Beach past the equally famous  Icebergs Pool and along the cliffs to Tamara Beach and then to Bronte Beach. If you are here when Sculpture by the Sea is on this adds another element to an already beautiful walk. There's only a few days to go before this year's exhibition ends. I went today and enjoyed this one the most so far.



Selfies selfies everywhere..


This might be my favourite. It is made from perspex layered then twisted and looks different from each angle. Brilliant. It's by Toshio Lezumi, called M.171001





 This one represents the moon with a bite out of it.


This is my other favourite by B. Jane Cowie called Swirling Surround. It was fun to crawl inside and experience it, a swarm of brightly coloured fish.






Have a good weekend everybody,
Val.

Dior Exhibition


Earlier this week I flew to Melbourne for a short break and went to see the Dior Exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. This exhibit has more than 200 garments, items, still photos, sketches and several films. It's a Dior past to present day extravaganza. I loved it. Photography (no flash) was permitted and as there were lots of mirrors there were lovely reflections. Here are some.



The girl reflected in the right hand corner was remarking on the craftsmanship of the skirt...


50's glamour to the max


Reflected


Impossible not to want to take photos!


The original parade



Lastly, Miranda Kerr's wedding dress. The material and hand appliqué flowers make it more stunning in real life than it is in photos. Very regal. 

Sharing to Weekend Reflections. Have a good weekend,
Val.
