It is now around 33 degrees and it is still going up, though being 4 o’clock in the afternoon, it is unlikely to go up much more. I don’t know if you have noticed a particular theme lately, but I have been doing lots of images of water, always so nice on a hot day.
This image and the next two are from the first roll of film I took of the ocean when I first got my slr back in 1993. I went down there with Sandra, though she wasn’t taking photos herself back then, but she did keep me company.
Again, I had no real idea what I was doing. I would never go down there and take photos in the middle of the day now, I would either get up very early and drive down, or go down in the middle of the day and stay late. The shadows early in the morning and late in the afternoon are better and the sun isn’t as harsh.
There really weren’t that many images amongst them that I thought were really any good. They are quite boring really. This image, breaks all the rules, horizon in the middle, there are no thirds, and no real point of interest. It really is a nothing shot, but had to show you, have to show that once I had absolutely no idea what I was doing.
I quite like this, though not sure why, perhaps because out of a whole roll of film this one did stand out. It could be anywhere, but I think you can tell it is the beach. I love the way grass grows at the beach.
An image like brings up memories of being there, of the cool sea breeze blowing on my face and my hair going everywhere. I can hear the memory of the waves crashing. It certainly takes some of the heat of the day off.
This is something we all love, well I do. I think this is image is serene and I wish I was there right now. I like night time at the beach, well except if there are mosquitoes. This is one of the ones I took at Aireys Inlet.
I hope your world is cooler than mine right now. If it is hot, maybe you are at the beach and not just looking at photos of it.
