Well it is that time of year again, sculptures by the sea, a great time to view the scenery at Glamamara.

View large, you know its a crime not to!

As usual and its becoming a dirty habit, +Suren J and +Rodney Campbell and myself get together and smash some light all in the name of trying to create something different than the run of the mill sculpture shots.

Its a wild world out there in sculptures by the sea, there must be a million bucks in photography gear alone on each given day as enthusiasts flock to grab a shot.

anyway, the ball full of water was on my list of ones to do – given the security guard was not gonna let us anywhere near the actually ball (grr) meant that i was not gonna get to do my bum cheeks against the ball, or my GP-5 mask or any EL wire….party poopers..

anyway so the following had to suffice. a pair of 15 dollar lasers (less than 1mw – so don't get excited or ) and coloured torch was all that was needed.

+Rodney Campbell on the red colour and myself and +Suren J on the lasers, however i think suren was more interested in lighting up the nudie couple in the house across the bay.

The Flour Mill

Part of the Mill which stopped use in the 1980's and turned into a studio, in 2007 it was converted into apartments and a more flashy studio 🙂

Great old building with lots of interest, seen here backdropped with the smoke from the recent fires in greater sydney.

NSW Burns

A fairly diabolic day for the Fire Services today, my hat goes off to those brave men and women who help protect homes, parks, lives and property from fire damage.

It may cost a small fortune to keep fire services active and ready, especially the aviation sector but I suspect, never will any of that money be wasted given the number and severity of fires we have had already…and its not even summer yet.

Sydney siders saw the effects of this today with the incredible plume of smoke snaking it's way to the east creating burnt orange skies.

In memory of the Breitling Wing Walker Jane Wicker who died in June this year

Even the mildest aircraft incident could result in death for a wing walker, let alone any type of crash.

These women make it look easy, but very few spectators appreciate the danger they put themselves in every flight, two hats off to ya ladies.

This image was taken early this year at Avalon Airshow.

yep, definitely Monday again, that means monochrome madness and a military Monday ;)

Blending the sweet lines of the F22, this thing has more curves than Mariah Carey.

the hardest thing is deciding whether to shoot from the rear or the side 🙂 or even just smack front on.

Riding the icy wave

…chased by the white wash. Not the best surf position, nor composition, however the back light on the wave really caught my eye.

Some locals at Maroubra enjoying the decent swell at the southern end of the beach.
