Light dance, North Bondi

Colony

By the look of it, all 42,000 readers of my daily email hit the beach this morning. I think at one stage I saw a couple of hundred swimmers crossing the bay – a big morning! I missed the 5:15 pink sky spray (still slappin’ myself as I type this). The surf is non-existent, like […]

Road Kill

I nearly got run over by a car twice this morning on my way to the Aquabumps HQ. That’s not a bad morning really, sometimes it’s more. The first time was someone running a stop sign on Gould, the other was 100 metres on…where crosswalks seem to mean floor it and try to collect something […]

Beginning of a new week, North Bondi

Deep Blue

The ocean was very blue this morning. Clarity was good, but the water temp. = exceptional.

I didn’t really see anything worth surfing at all even though we had clean calm conditions. Tomorrow arvo the swell […]

Apparently it was a technicolor sunrise at 6:15am. I missed it. Guttered. Still slapping myself. Everyone I […]

Autumn

These autumn mornings are great. Today was especially great because: With the recent time change my body still thinks it’s 6:30am when it’s 5:30am. You can fit a whole world of stuff in before heading to ‘work’. Also it’s not a strain to get up and see/shoot the sunrise. The sunrises are best in Autumn. […]

The green hornet

People often ask me about the funny stuff I see on my early morning meanderings. Funny stuff is pretty much on tap down at Bondi. For example, at 7am this morning whilst I was shooting/basking in morning light, a gentleman ran past me wearing nothing but, what looked like, bright green undies. Odd. The outfit […]
