Moreidlethoughts Weblog

humour,art,gardens, books and whatever idle thoughts float through my mind (it's a very draughty mind.)



Yes, I did take the camera down to the gallery. Yes, I did take some pictures. No, you can’t see them yet!

I had to contend with people walking into frame, glare from lights and my own questionable ability. But I will fiddle about in the editing programme and see what improvements I can make.

But I wouldn’t want all you lovely people to come all this way (after all, most of my readers are on the “dark side” of the planet) and not see some artwork.

So here are a few pictures of one of my favourite sculptures. Look closely and you will see what these critters are made from. And if I can find out who made this I’ll come back and tell you.

The big picture…

…and some smaller parts thereof
bird bath

frogs and a platypus

How many people would have consigned these rusty relics to the tip? It’s like Meccano for Big Boys, isn’t it?

A short post (again!) because I have places to be other than in here. Ooh! And I must get some more massage oil. (That’ll be interesting if some bored person is googling !)
And, speaking of being bored, isn’t it tedius, sitting at the computer waiting for some programmes to do whatever it is they do? In such an idle moment the other day I did this little quiz. My answer was BMW

But of course…

What should you be driving?

  2. Love the sculpture – I admire the ingenuity and adore the whimsy of it, just my kinda thing.


  3. ILTV and cenise…yes, it really is a lovely thing.There are 3(I think) of those concrete panels and the “stream” meanders across all of them.
    It’s at the entrance to the Botanic Gardens.


  4. LOVE that sculptures! Those frogs! All of it. I so admire the creativity of folks – especially in imaginatively reusing discarded objects.
