Hyams Beach

Hi all! I do apologise for not posting for so long. The discovery of instagram got in the way. My handle over there is @valerielebedevas if you are interested. It's amazing how a collection of photos with only a few words can really resonate and then I found fascinating people to follow all over the world. It's all so seductively easy so this blog got neglected.

Anyway, I recently had a placement working down the south coast of NSW in Nowra and had a chance to explore places I'd never been to before. One that left a lasting impression was Hyams Beach. It doesn't have much in the way of facilities. No shops, no boulevards, barely any parking or changing facilities but the most stunning turquoise water white sand and peaceful vista I have ever seen. It's gorgeous and it goes for miles!

Sending you warmth,

Last weekend at an unfamiliar beach, exploring, I was crouching down taking shots close to the water and a young couple walked into my shot. Makes for a cute reflection doesn't it?

One for Weekend Reflections.
Have a good one,

Sculpture by the Sea Bondi 2017

If you ever come to Sydney there's a famous sea side walk from Bondi Beach past the equally famous  Icebergs Pool and along the cliffs to Tamara Beach and then to Bronte Beach. If you are here when Sculpture by the Sea is on this adds another element to an already beautiful walk. There's only a few days to go before this year's exhibition ends. I went today and enjoyed this one the most so far.

Selfies selfies everywhere..

This might be my favourite. It is made from perspex layered then twisted and looks different from each angle. Brilliant. It's by Toshio Lezumi, called M.171001

 This one represents the moon with a bite out of it.

This is my other favourite by B. Jane Cowie called Swirling Surround. It was fun to crawl inside and experience it, a swarm of brightly coloured fish.

Have a good weekend everybody,
