Sunday Snapshot: Sydney Harbour

Posted By in Travel Photography | 4 comments

Today’s Sunday Snapshot comes from Gordon and Paula, who have been travelling ever since they met 10 years ago, and for some unknown reason are contented traveller(s). Gordon forgot the ‘s’. They aid and abet one another in their ventures. Their site arose from their love of travel and unusual adventures, but also, and most importantly their ability to embrace serendipity.

Xu Hongfei sculpture Sydney Harbour

“The sculpture is by the Chinese artist Xu Hongfei who had an exhibition on the foreshores of the beautiful Sydney Harbour, celebrating chubby women worldwide. This combines all of the things that I love – a stunning city, a talented and inspirational artist, and a tribute to the acceptance of others.”

What are some of your favourite pieces of art around the world?

    Okay I get the message here, but this is a weird sculpture! I would bet there are better ways to appreciate a fuller figure than this. She looks like a little kid. Anyway, still cool. One of the coolest I've ever seen was in Stockholm – a giant finger and nose sticking out of the water so that it looked like there was a giant under water. I have photos if this makes no sense, haha!

      I know what you mean! At first I thought it was strange, but the more I looked at it, the more I thought the curvier woman looked more happy and carefree than the thin one. I'm still not sure what to think!

    I've seen works by that artist in China, but I have to admit that I like them much better when juxtaposed against the Sydney harbor! The chubby woman definitely wouldn't be appreciated in China, unfortunately. I can imagine a giggling crowd surrounding her and taking photos.
