Sydney | Sculpture by the Sea 2022 (1)

After a two year wait Sculpture by the Sea was given the green light to return to the shores of the Bondi to Bronte coast line. 

I timed my visit poorly and found myself snapping photos in the middle of the day. Due to work being short staffed I also left my visit till the last day the event was running which meant every other person who also left Sculpture by the Sea till the last minute was also there, which was a lot!

I was confident I photographed every sculpture but upon sorting photos at home I've realized I'd missed around ten installments, woops! Next year I will endeavor to visit early morning and mid week to avoid the crowds.
