Melon time!

Estate infinita

Well, that was one helluva beach weekend — one of the year’s most beautiful. With crystal clear warm water and a few small waves, I am pretty sure you’re happy with how your weekend went down. Today – not so great. One foot, offshore, and lots and lots of rain. I wasn’t feeling inspired to […]

It’s raining in Sydney; it hasn’t stopped all morning. The crusted salt on my car is finally washing away as hopefully, our farmers are jumping for joy with drought reprieve.

A mare…

Well, it wasn’t my most memorable morning down at Bondi. There’s definitely room for improvement. The waves are a dribbly foot, it’s semi onshore, raining and well – the beach is empty. I did get down there, 2 cameras in hand, ready for action. But my inspiration blew away in the first rain squall. I […]

It’s pouring with rain outside in Sydney. Nice day to be indoors. I didn’t shoot this morning for obvious reasons. I choose to show you some gold from the Aquabumps archives. My mother has worked in the airline biz nearly her entire life (and still does). She taught us boys at a young age that […]
