Photographer's Note

This is one of the many works of art in this year's Sculptures By The Sea at Tamarama Beach. The exhibition runs every year - and has done for the last 59 years - along the coastline of Sydney's City Beaches: Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte.

This particular sculpture is called "Ship of Fools" by Deborah Halpern. Deborah is from Victoria and specialises in ceramics and mosaics (my favourite type of medium). Personally, I think this Ship of Fools should be copied and erected outside every government house in the Western World, to let the politicians know what a mess they're all making of our lives. I'm such a cynic!

Note on the photo: As for most shots, I shoot a stop to the right and a stop to the left to what the meter says. I regularly calibrate my monitor but have noticed the photos that look "right" in terms of light, look a little faded when I actually upload them. So today I've uploaded an under-exposed shot just to see how it goes on screen once uploaded.

In my Workshop you can see a slightly different POV with 1 stop to the right.
