Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe, Perth

Friends & relatives talk about it

But I have never seen it

What can be so grand

That seems to make no sense?

On 4 Mar 2010 . . . Sculptures by the Sea took over the beautiful fine sand on Cottesloe Beach in Perth. Sunday March 22, being the last Sunday, I thought the crowd seeking out the pleasure would have dwindled, but the line of traffic & teeming crowd were even more so.

It was late in the afternoon when we finally parked & joined the bustling crowd. Armed with my new “toy”, a semi-professional Pentax K-r Digital SLR, my triggering finger never ceased to click for a moment. I was also experimenting with my old interchangeable lenses in the non-digital days gone by. I was happy & fortunate to be able to use those lenses all over again. Making the decision to buy this Pentax K-r DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) was about the quickest & easiest I ever had to make.

I used a very wide-angled lens to try as it were to capture it all with one single click! It’s the SMC Pentax 1:3.5 15 mm lens with various shades of colour settings such as skylight, yellow, red & orange. The effects were fantastic & the resulting shots wonderful. The sunset shots & silhouette shots just get to be more beautiful than the actual scene.

Have a look & share with me the joy of an amateur photographer:

    Wow, how lucky we are. Without even going to the beach ourselves, without having your newest “toy”, we can join you enjoying “modern”(?) sculptures.

    Thanks Paul. You helped make our day to-day.
