Oh Sydney, you big show-off. I travel round the world via 7 countries, 3 continents and countless photos later to find you basking in the sunshine and frolicking in the waves without a care in the world.
Oh yeah, sure you have the odd bad hair day, but anyone who thinks 18C in winter is cold and that forgetting your bus ticket on the way to work in the morning is the worst thing that can happen to you, is kidding themselves. Yes, I can see you fluffing out your peacock feathers as we speak. And why not? When you’re not hosting a party, putting on a parade or lighting up the harbour with a multi-million dollar firework display, you’re usually strutting about, enjoying a coffee or at the beach surfing. Hmm…life’s tough when you’re having fun.
And today is no exception. It’s the first day of Spring and you’re looking your usual fabulous self. Sure there’s a few clouds about, but nothing worth crying over. So sit back and enjoy yourself with a couple of beachside photos to celebrate the new season.
i love your 1st pic a lot!!
Thanks! He was a real character 🙂
I absolutely LOVE your second-to-last photo, of the stairs and the sunset peeking through the tree. What a lovely image! And I like the feeling of your first photo, too. Enjoy seeing your pictures!
Thanks Shari! I haven’t done much night photography (except for a luna eclipse in South Africa and that was v v tricky!). Going to keep experimenting and see how it goes 🙂
Its official, I want your life. Travelling and taking amazing photos, what a dream 🙂
Unfortunately that life is all too fleeting! I wish I could say that’s what I do full-time, but alas that dream is still a dream (for now at least!). Thanks for reading!
