Atlantis Marine Park

Here is my entry for ARCHISCRAPS challenge #8

You can get to Archiscraps here

This months challenge inspires you to use a headshot and BLING.

and this unique sculpture below.

Czech artist David Černý's North Carolina piece 'Metalmorphosis.' 

Here is my interpretation of the challenge.....

ATLANTIS Marine Park
(Bling is the wavy lines above and below the photos)

and a close up

Journaling says......

We holidayed in Perth with Paul and Terri Gigiacomo in 1982.

Steve and I flew over and then we travelled back to Melbourne in a Combi van along the Nullarbor Hwy.

 We visited the ‘Atlantis Marine Park’ which had only opened as a theme park in 1981.

It was a great park with some fantastic  performing dolphins and many sculptures scattered around the park.
You can see me standing on King Neptune’s Hand, he was the biggest sculpture in the park.

 I also had my photo taken with Rolf Harris.

 Sadly the park closed in 1990 due to financial problems. Since its closure the park has 

been abandoned and vandalised.




  1. What a shame the park has closed. It looks fantastic. These photos are ideal for the challenge.
