Locals Only 22.11.2012

Yesterday was quite an amazing day to go surfing.

Today tis not so good. It’s horrendously onshore and overcast.

Instead of shooting onshore slop I opted to point my lens at the people I see down there, every day. There are hundreds that get up at sunrise and do their thing. Here is a few.

    living in Bondi , the photo’s just bring me closer to them. I also have your book and a few pictures on my
