A little storm cloud / sunset combo happening over the beautiful Sawtell headland a few nights ago. After a huge day of shooting a commercial photo assignment and a 5 hour car trip I still had enough in the tank to race up the hill to capture the last light. When there’s even a half chance of getting a decent photo it’s near impossible for me to down tools no matter how tied I might feel.

Surfers awaiting the day’s first waves witness a dawn that might instead deliver commandments.
My experience here at Bronte this morning was a surprisingly sentimental one. The dark and deserted streets through which I quietly arrived were once the scenes of much youthful adventure. And while new businesses have replaced the many shops I visited as child, there’s a warm familiarity to the shape and character of the buildings they inhabit.
What’s now a café was once considered home to the best fish and chips in Sydney’s east. My friends and I would visit on weekends, knowing that our pocket money here could purchase a feast! A single dollar obtained 5 potato scallops with a wedge of lemon and a generous splash of vinegar - the hot fumes of which we’d dare each other to inhale as we wandered across the road and down to the beach. Just another 40 cents bought the obligatory can of Coke.
Life was simple. Life was good.
