Backpacking reindeer has the wanderlust and goes googly-eyed when visiting new places.
This is a sculpture called Fish Fossil, by Christopher Trotter and made in 1995 from scrap metal and concrete. Mum asked many months ago to find this sculpture and take a photo, and I have been searching for it all of this time. I knew it existed because I had seen photos, but it eluded me every time. As it turns out, this is because I was always riding past on my bike, and it is tilted in such a way that when riding past, it's almost invisible. I finally spotted it when I was training for Bridge to Brisbane and jogged past it.
This is a statue / sculpture near work that I've been meaning to get over and photograph for a while. My challenge was to photograph it in such a way that all of the elements were included (including the antlers in the backpack) without it being just a straight on shot.

Both Lynnette and Lucinda were thoroughly unimpressed with what I had planned to post, so I went out and snapped this sculpture that hangs from the ceiling of our local shops. This is a callback to the mining roots of this city. Mum asked me to take a photo of this about a year ago... so here it is, Mum!
