Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Chloe & Friends

Chloe & Friends-107

Good evening from a cool Hastings day.

Sorry I wasn’t able to catch up with everyone but it was my Social Snappers day.  That means rushing off in the mornings.  Today we went for a walk around Hastings CBD.  A big favourite of townspeople and visitors alike are Chloe and her friends.

Artist: Gary Hebley.

Installed in 1989 as an aesthetic addition to the inner city upgrade, the sheep have remained a family favourite ever since.

The flock of sheep proudly recognises Hastings’ strong links to its rural hinterland where pastoral farming has been the backbone of the Hastings District Economy.
The names of the sheep were chosen by children through a public competition with Chloe the black sheep and her four friends – Molly, Polly, Sally & Susie.

Perfect for Cee’s black & white challenge asking us for our sculptures, statues and carvings. Actually I really didn’t need to do any post processing into monochrome – black and white sheep……

    1. Thanks. We do have a lot of artwork around town here, with strong links to our heritage. This is a good spot for tourists to sit on and take photos with the clock tower in the background which I cropped out in the top image.

    1. Very true. But they are guarded by the Clock Tower. This IS the spot for the tourists – big and small to sit on the sheep and have their photos taken. I take these sorts of photos but now have to research them.
      It was funny yesterday as I am from out of town, the other ladies from the group had been there for much long than I have and didn’t know what the art works were about. Kinda weird.
