Voyager 2

The word prompt from Debbie at Travel with Intent: Voyager

I couldn’t make up my mind which photo to use for this photo challenge.
So here is Voyager 2

190127_blog_challenge_voyager_sculpture_man_clouds

He stood
wondering at the sea
The Man of Clouds.
The Voyager travelled
from a distant world
The Man of Clouds.
People stopped
people stared
The Man of Clouds.
People saw shapes
saw hands
The Man of Clouds.
They marvelled
at his voyage
The Man of Clouds.
He saw his kin
floating over the sea
The Man of Clouds.
He stood
wondering at the sea
The Man of Clouds.

Voyager 1

The word prompt from Debbie at Travel with Intent: Voyager
190127_blog_challenge_voyager_sculpture_boat

They came by sea.
Their boat
adorned with silver.
Their oars
rusted,
useless.
The voyagers
set ashore
never to return.
Their boat
shipwrecked
useless
to voyage
no more.

Time # 21 – Child in Time (A Sculpture)

This months photo challenge in square format from Becky is Time

This month I will put a song with the photo.

*This post includes a nude sculpture of a young boy. This was quite controversial at the Sydney Sculptures by the Sea Exhibition in 2009. If you feel this may offend you please exit now. Thank you

The December theme is TIME. I am sure everyone has found at least one #timesquare, but just in case you are struggling here are some #timesquare ideas;

Timepieces – clocks, watches, sun dials and egg timers
Sayings – Time & tide wait for no man (or woman!), A stitch in time saves nine, Early bird catches the worm, In the nick of time or More haste, less speed
Synonyms – era, moment, season, infinity, interval, lifetime and age
Out of the box – nighttime, downtime, pastime and mealtimes!

Balance: Sculptures by the Sea

The word prompt from Jenn at Traveling At Wits End: Balance

I try to go to a wonderful outdoor art exhibition held on the cliff edge and parks on Sydney’s southern beaches called Sculptures By The Sea. Here are some great sculptures I photographed over the years that have good balance

Sculptures

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Sculptures, Statues or Carvings

A while ago, I went to an annual event in Sydney called Sculptures By The Sea. I have so many photos from then as well as previous times, it was hard to get down to a few. The ones I picked have a bit of a sea view.
