|WOW- Perfect Palindrome for a Memorable Moment...Artist: Midge Johansen, Queensland, Australia.|
How fortunate was I, to be holidaying at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast at the same time as the 10th annual Swell Sculpture Festival was being held at Currumbin Beach. Even more of a co-incidence was that my wife and I happened to be cycling in the area and was able to view the entire exhibition whilst it was still fresh. I was so impressed I decided to share some of the photographs I took with you.

I have seen some wonderful exhibitions in different parts of the world from time to time but this is the first time that I have been able to combine my love of cycling with an outside exhibition on a beautiful beach.

The diversity of talent that artists continually display in exhibitions everywhere never ceases to amaze me. The power and complexity of the brain that inspires these beautiful creations just leaves me in awe.
