This close-up of a small part of the infrastructure of the Sydney Harbour Bridge gives some idea of the intricate complexity of the steelwork.

I thought I might start playing along with the new Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC) that is being curated in alternate weeks by Cee Neuner and Marsha Ingrao. As usual, I’ve turned up late, so this is Week 2.
The idea is to post an image of any example of public art, which is defined as any art form (buildings, statues, graffiti, paintings etc) that is plainly visible from a public place. There’s certainly never going to be a shortage of potential subjects.
My initial contribution is ‘The Convict’. This carving in sandstone can be found in the oldest part of Sydney, around Circular Quay. It’s one of a series portraying historical characters. The ‘real’ shackles certainly bring it to life. I suppose you could say that they are quite arresting.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is iconic. It’s possible to take a guided tour of the superstructure, as these hardy souls have. No thank you: sea level is just fine with me.

The glass walls of the pool produce the optical illusion that there are two performing seals earning their keep here at Taronga Zoo in Sydney.
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Blue

This week, Cee is looking for a photo dominated by a single colour.
This is a firework I captured in the New Year’s Eve display in Sydney a few years ago. Photographing fireworks is always a bit of a hit-and-miss affair, but I think I got lucky with this one.

Cee’s theme for her Fun ‘Foto’ Challenge this week is ‘orange and pink’. Funny, I could have sworn that when it was first listed it was orange and blue. Or maybe I’m getting too old for this malarkey.
Anyway, I don’t have any images of orange and pink together (why on earth would I?), so here’s an orange and blue I made earlier. A performing seal at Taronga Zoo in Sydney.
