Join us on our daily photo safari through Melbourne and sometimes beyond.
Call her big and beautiful. (Though perhaps she is six inches tall?)Lucy
I was just about to comment on how big Bessy was too Joe, but Lucy has a good point, have you tricked us somehow?? If not then my original WOW that's big still stands..
Lucy & Perth. No trick photography here. Bessy is really that big. She used to sit in front of the Art Gallery in St Kilda Road and was given a new home on the banks of the Yarra a while back. This photo was taken from the opposite bank with a zoom lens.
I wish we had fun and creative public art such as this. Wonderful image Joe! Have a nice weekend!
Artistic and nice!The name is fine:)
Excellent! Really great.
Why? Why Bessie? My mind keeps wanting something more Trojan ...
Love the colouring and you captured her beautifully.
I think it's officially called "Angel", isn't it? I love this art/sculpture, but you've totally thrown me with the angle you've taken it from! I can't reconcile the Hyatt with any angle you might view this from. I'm confused!!:-)
Hey Alan, it's taken from the opposite side of the Yarra with a zoom.
Joe, I really like this view of Bessy. Hadn't thought of a photo from the other side of the Yarra. Great shot! Wonder if the new name will stick?
