Contemplating the Diamond Bay Raw Sewerage outflow.
Sitting here on the edge of the cliffs of Diamond bay one could not help but notice the rather over bearing stench of shit coming from the churning waters below.
So, lets sum this up.. apparently its been proposed a few times to build a tunnel to link this raw sewerage outflow into the nearby ones including the Bondi deep sea outfall, why the feck would a bunch of rich people in mansions put the hell up with an ass bent smell wafting thru their windows on a sunday night ? Sheesh… Rod and I were here only for a few hours and it had me longing for my inner west shoebox..
So why not fix it ? too expensive ? god knows.. but there is/was an action group called CROSRS (Concerned Residents Opposed to Sewers on Residential Streets)… like wtf .. apparently it would be traffic chaos if they dug the streets up to put this poo tube in! lol.. can anyone say westconnex :)
Anyways enough rantage for a tuesday night – its been several years since I been to this spot including the actual 'Diamond Bay', not much has changed beside things getting a bit greener :) This little arch way which i had buried in the back of mind turned out to be a pretty cool little subject for some star trails and light painting shenanigans – Rodney Campbell did a great job standing still for an hour and a half :) Its also the start of a pathway down to some mad fishing spots, if you enjoy heights and tiny rock ledges that is…
