I went to Maroubra Beach yesterday. Not for any reason in particular, just to go somewhere I hadn’t been before. A mini escape without leaving Sydney at all. It’s a nice place, not a Bra Boy in sight. Families, and loads of people out for Mother’s Day. People swimming as well, strange since the weather is quite cold now, I imagine the water would have been very chilly.
I took my camera, wandered around, up the coastal path, down to the sandy beach where the waves were dotted with surfers on their boards. Here are a few shots. The photos weren’t great, so it was a prime opportunity to do some more playing with Photoshop, a program that I am beginning to very much doubt my ability to live without.
I wonder where the owners of the bikes are? I think there is an air of mystery about this photo. Maybe a pair of young emo lovers jumped off the cliff… or perhaps a pair of eco lovers have just gone for a stroll. I was thinking it might have been a couple of hooligan youths, but then I noticed that one of the bikes is a boy bike and one is a girl bike, so there is an air of romance about it.
Mother and son… not talking it seems.
The ladies loos. An important place.
Some kids were having a birthday party and this had been drawn on the coastal path.
Flowers someone had tied in memory for a mum who must have loved sitting on this seat looking out along the coast from Maroubra all the way to Bondi and Bronte.
