Sydney Biennale 2014

Way back in May I had a visit to the Sydney Biennale for the first time in many years. Decades probably. I remember seeing it at the Art Gallery of New South Wales in the 80s or 90s.

This day was my first trip to Cockatoo Island.

Being on Sydney Harbour is always a joy


Particularly on a gorgeous afternoon

Soon enough Cockatoo Island loomed up

Everyone had their cameras out, even the fashionista types
A Diana camera
We spent a lovely few hours checking out the art.

you may not see it, but it's still there

Late afternoon light on Sydney sandstone. Gorgeous. 
Even seagulls look gorgeous against the late afternoon light

It was a perfect afternoon
Sydney Biennale finished in June. You'll need to wait til 2016 for the next one.

Beautiful photos of a perfectly beautiful day. I'd love to visit that area and see all the lovely art -- man made and natural.

Wow, I love that last shot especially. Australia seems to be full of interesting art.

You are such a great photographer. You see things that other people miss. The seagulls are very nice.

I could have waved to you across the water from our verandah if I'd known :-)

I love how the grass behind the seagulls is aglow with the setting sun too. It's hard to beat the art of mother nature.
