Elephants are all the buzz in Sydney this week because a baby elephant was born in our zoo. Luckly it doesn't look deformed like this one.

I like his art, this sculpture is amazing! Also this white building against the blu sky is wonderful.
Have a nice week:)

I enjoy looking at Dali's work but I must say I wouldn't want to run into any of his creations if they were alive!

Trust Dali to turn an elephant into a nightmarish predator! Awesome!

Dali's work always makes me smile. Perhaps he wouldn't like my description, but I find his pieces very whimsical.

Interesting sculpture. I'm glad you included both shots. It must be a great place to spend some time.

Well, I definitely like your photos, but the "elephant" ... I think I like it but it sure as hell is weird!

I like that second shot. Using light and shadows, you're turning this into such a powerful statement.

Depois de ver os posts sobre o Palácio do Egipto decidi lá passar brevemente. Estas 2 fotos estão fantásticas.
Abraço.

Dali was certainly a show (and buisness) man, but definitely a fantastic artist!
