Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Sculptures in Singapore

One of the joys of exploring a new city is finding the unexpected. Here in Singapore I came across some wonderful sculptures in some unusual places.

This was in the Botanical gardens. The plinth the sculpture is on is quite high so it looks like the girl is riding a bike on the top of a hedge.

I loved the balance of the 'Girl on a swing' as the only part of the sculpture  attached to the plinth is her dress.




As you enter the Botanical gardens a large area is taken up with these figures by Zadok Ben-David


It is called 'Innerscape'



But down by the river is my favourite:

  3. I am with you in liking that last one best though they are all wonderful. The last line in the Chang Kuda write-up is oh so correct. Kids these days in the "developed" part of the world simply do not know how to entertain themselves without the aid of some electronic contraption in their hands before their faces.

  9. These are terrific sculptures, all of them. The balance and flowing lines creating the feleing of movement is so good.
