Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe 2013 is pretty impressive. Did you know for instance, that there were 220 artist submissions from 19 countries? Impressive. In the end, of the final 70 selected, a third belong to our very own WA artists, a third from artists elsewhere in Australia & the final third consisting of international pieces. You can read all about the exhibition, the sculptures, artists & more over at the Sculpture by the Sea website & be sure to check out their image gallery for some great pictures by Clyde Yee & our very own local super snapper Jarrod Seng.
Running for its 9th year (I’ve been to maybe 4 from memory) I was pretty happy that I managed to load the car up with bodies both big & small & head down early last saturday morning for a little spot of my own photography. I didn’t quite get around to all 70 sculptures but here are a look at some of my favourites.

Have a great weekend.
