Hyde Park Barracks was constructed between 1817-19 as hosing for convict men and boys. It provided convict lodging until 1848. Today visitors to the building discover the daily lives of convicts and other occupants through exhibitions on Sydney’s male convict labour force, Australia’s convict system, an innovative soundscape, excavated artefacts, exposed layers of building fabric and the complex’s rooms and spaces.
The snails are part of the Art about Sydney exhibition, each one weighs 100kg. and is made from recycled materials.

una foto straordinaria nella composizione e piacevolissima per i colori saturi che mette allegria.
Un soggetto assai piacevole che hai saputo cogliere nella migliore delle maniere.
Eccellente anche la nitidezza.
Ciao e buona settimana

The strong colors are beautiful in the picture, and the even stronger colors of the snails make them really stand out in the composition! Very good light and colors! Wonderful job!

Good saturated colours and composition make this photo stand out. The strong sunlight is well handled.

Ce qui frappe en premier lieu dans cette composition, c'est la richesse des couleurs, surtout le jaune qui donne beaucoup de caractère à l'ensemble. Elles ne doivent pas bouger plus vite que les naturelles.

Those snails must have slithered in since I walked past on Thursday. Well composed giving a very different take on the Barracks.

Those snails look quite funny. And they look so out of the place, no wonder they are part of temporary exhibition. Good colourful architectural shot. And no doubt an interesting place to visit.

a striking and extremely original shot this. I love the snails and you have made them stand out so irresistibly in this colourful panoramic masterpiece. Excellent!

Striking warm cold colour contrasts between the blue sky, the red brick barracks and the bookending yellow snails either end. Good sharpness, density and saturation. Thw wide angled panoramic crop suits the subject. Tfs and have a nice week!

Wonderful picture Chris, the old building in background is lovely of architecture.
The two nice artworks from recycled materials make these picture very attractive.
Lovely depth and perspective too.
Excellent cityscape, with perfect sharpness and clarity
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Splendide par le contraste des couleurs, l'architecture et les sculptures des escargots en jaune vif, c'est spécial et une originalité qui me plait

I love this quirky picture with the dayglow snails! The saturated blue sky balances thie picture well. Lovely light that has been well used, and I like the sharpness giving very clean lines.
Kind Regards, Ann
