Free flowers in Sydney City

Finally, summer is here! And what would be better to celebrate it by having a few colourful flowers on your balcony?... Getting those flowers for free!

Sydney city is giving out their flowers from the Living Colour display around the city today (and I'm guess next Sunday too). For today they have the location in front of St. Mary's church.

People went there with trucks! We arrived there without a car, so it's a bit hard to carry. Luckily, there is the husband and his backpack; another good use of a husband!

(A bit of a side story: we had to go to cinema after, because I got a free double pass from ABC to preview the movie Gasland. So the two pots were there in the cinema with us!)

We got one pot each of Celosia Yellow and red.
Thank you Sydney City!

Sculpture by the sea 2010

We went to visit Bondi Beach last week to see this year's Sculpture by the sea 2010.

It was a fun afternoon of photographing, albeit it was quite crowded. Very hard to take pictures without anybody being in between your lens and the sculpture.
Luckily I got ahead with my sigma wide angle!

Took too many photos (will upload more later), but this particular one is my favorite. It's a result of an HDR from 3 photos.

OMG. I tried to find the artist behind this work, but I still couldn't find it (Let me know if you do know!). I think credit should be given to whoever decide on the placement of it. To put it right in the sight of the sun creates an amazing shadow. My job was just to be there to capture it at the right time. And if you're wondering, the lens flare is real!

Check out last my year's Sculpture of the Sea photos here.
