Temporary – Shaun in the City

Despite they’ve only been in the city for a while, at least one of the Shauns as been damaged and has been taken away for some TLC. So not to disappoint people, a temporary green Shaun is put in place, until the original has been fixed, repaired and then returned.

I also took some new shots of two I have already photographed, not sure why.

Ten out of Seventy – Shaun in the City

At the weekend in the sun we were in Bristol, one of the little ones was spending some of her birthday money. While we were there we started finding and ticking off the seventy Shaun the Sheep sculptures that have been placed around the city.

In 2015, Shaun the Sheep stars in two ewe-nique charity arts trails across Bristol and London, organised by Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation – introducing, Shaun in the City!

From 6th July to 31st August, the charity are bringing 70 b-ewe-tiful giant Shaun the Sheep sculptures, created by artists, designers and celebrities, to iconic locations and green spaces across Bristol for the public to enjoy. Back in spring, our first flock of 50 entirely ewe-nique Shauns arrived in London on 28th March and made the capital’s pastures their home until 31st May.

I have created a page to record all the Shauns we find and here are the first ten.

56. Cecilia

Cecilia is a very “traditional” Shaun the Sheep, he looks like a sheep wearing a quilted vest!

57.Baguss Shaun

Is this Shaun or Bagpuss, clever painting makes this look more like a cat than a sheep. Of course, when Bagpus goes to sleep, all his friends go to sleep…

58. Lily

Munching on the grass, Lily appears to be quite at home on Lower Castle Street.

59. Knitwit

Slightly crowded off on Saturday by the fencing surrounding the Pride festival, this multi-coloured sheep certainly didn’t look out of place next door to the festival.

62. Alright me Babber?

A challenging sheep to photograph, not just because like us everyone was trying to take a photo of Shaun, but also with all the train travellers attempting to leave and arrive at Bristol Temple Meads.

63. The Bristol Express

Can we make Shaun look like a railway line? Well we can try…

64. Great West Shaun

Shaun looks better as a train, complete with smoke, steam, buffers and a boiler.

65. Rose

Looking very much like a painted canal boat next to the river by Valentine’s Bridge (which I now know is called Valentine’s Bridge).

66. Bingo

Next to quite a busy road, Bingo is a colourful addition.

67. Sheepish

We nearly missed this one, we didn’t have a map with us at the time, but I saw a load of people crowded into Temple Church Gardens and I wondered what they were doing, then I noticed the pink. Here we have Shaun attempting to be a pink poodle…

So ten down and sixty to go….

Making Sandcastles

For the last few years there has been an exhibition of sand sculptures on the beach at Weston-super-Mare. To call them sandcastles is a bit of a misnomer as these are truly remarkable sculptures and the artists have spent hours and days carving the compacted sand.

We have been most years and I bring my camera to capture the sculptures, here are some photographs of this year’s carvings.
