Photo opportunities can be all over in a snap, as was the case with this one taken at Cottesloe last week of a man contemplating a high speed pass northward along the coast by an RAAF fighter. After some contemplation of my own I'm guessing the anonymous man may have been an Indian tourist. The clues were his hair and clothing. In any case the image is another addition to my contemplative men series. It can be clicked up to a larger size and viewed alongside other contemplative moments in my 'Black and white' folder on Picasa.
Man and sculpture contemplate quick pass of Aussie fighter
The steel device was by South Australian sculptor Greg Johns. It contributed to the temporary 2013 Sculpture by the Sea exhibition at Cottesloe Beach, which finished last Sunday. The work was simply called 'Horizon figure.' Here's the link to Greg's website: http://www.gregjohnssculpture.com
