The angles of the Swell Festival…

The  Swell Festival is here again. This is the 13th year it has created  an open air, free, art and sculpture installation for 10 days on the glorious Currumbin Beach.

It is quirky, it is fun and it is set against a backdrop of sea, sand and sun

There are 56 installations this year from Australia and all over the world.

This is called “Googlemon”, Scott Maxwell, the creator, asks you to “weave around the space, head south, find the “sweet spot” and it will all come together”

 I wandered around it looking from all angles. And I thought of Ailsa’s travel theme.

Suddenly, there it was…

In your face… If you have a spare $18,000 you can put this in your garden.

I will come back later and show you more of these amazing sculptures.

Weekly Photo Challenge : Angles in the garden

Shane Francescut is the guest host this week. His challenge, photograph a person, or a piece of fruit, or a toy — any stationary object — and experiment by photographing it from different angles. While there is no minimum — and you’re always welcome to adapt every photo challenge to meet your needs — I challenge you to choose three of your favourite shots and post them in a gallery on your blog.

So I’m going back in the garden for my WPC inspiration this week.

The staghorn fern loves tropical rainforest conditions and is a native of Tropical Northern Australia and many other tropical areas around the world. Platycerium is a genus of about 18 fern species in the polypod family. I also like how the fronds are shaped like deer antlers and grow at all angles from the kidney shaped shield.

Behind me I could hear a raucous racket going on in next door’s bottlebrush tree. Look what I saw.

I could only get the one shot before this Lorikeet flew away, but he is certainly at an angle to get a feed.
