Sculptures

I'm not a fan of modern art. Much like my complete non-comprehension over the appeal of poetry, I just don't get it. Pretty much anything that dates from after the Impressionist period makes me do a confused dog head tilt. And don't even get me started on paintings that are worth a bajillionty dollars, but which are a white canvas with two red lines on it!

One of the few exceptions to this rule is sculpture. I don't know what it is - probably the fact that sculptures are much less wanky - but I mostly just think they're cool. Or, as a guest lecturer said in class last night, "groovy". (Yes, we sniggered. No, I don't feel bad about it.)

All of which is a really long winded way of saying that about a month ago, we went on a walk around the Heide sculpture garden and neighbouring Banksia Park. And my trusty (now absent) camera came with me. OBVIOUSLY. And basically? Taking photos of different textures is fun.







Trees are deemed really old if Little Miss A can't get her arms around them.



Also? Banksia Park has a playground with a flying fox. Small children like said flying fox. See?

Random segue: have a good Easter, y'all! <3

  1. Corrugated iron cows! These are roughly seven million times better than poetry.

    1. Right?? I wish we'd studied corrugated iron cows in high school rather than poetry... ;)

  2. I like the corrugated iron too.

    Now that I think about it, there are a few spectacular corrugated iron sculptures around New Zealand. I can think of the visitors centre in Tirau (it's a giant sheep and dog). Also, the big gumboot in Taihape.

    I hope you get a camera again soon!!

    1. I hope so too!! We've still not heard back from the insurance company... Although at least this means that by the time I finally get the money, I'll have birthday money to top it up if required!

Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
