Night photography with a friend Ian.

It seemed as though the elements were plotting against us. Each time we organised to meet up with Ellie & Martin, a lovely English couple introduced to us by a friend, the weather would start out beautiful and then the wind would start blowing up a storm. Afternoons sunsets just weren't working for us, so we all decided to flip the weather a bird and get up super early for sunrise. Coffees in hand, we met at Marks Park for a beautiful & calming sunrise. This was one of the most peaceful shoots we have done in a long time. We had the park & the beach to ourselves for quite sometime. Lovely & refreshing.
Today we are pleased to announce a little side project we are starting called Bondi Photo Club. It is all in the name actually. Simply a photo and imagery club in Sydney's beautiful Bondi Beach aimed to being anyone with a love for making amazing images together with beer to fight it out in the pub with sharp knives. Finally we will know which is bette Nikon or Canon!
Well kind of.. Everything but the knife fight is true. We are having out first meet up on the 4th of July 2012 @ 7PM down at the Hotel Bondi near the beach so come down, enjoy a beer with some fellow photographers and have a chat about camera gear, Photoshop, filters, tripods and creative projects.

A quick Saturday brekky at our new local cafe "The favourite child" revealed a contraption that looked more at home in a mad scientists laboratory. The one owner has created a drip coffee machine to make a cold coffee drink that is fantastically out of this world (or at least different to the usual stuff we find in Bondi) that takes 8 hours to percolate through the different tubes and filters. You don't have to wait the 8 hours for a cup though, just long enough for them to pour it from a pot they prepared earlier :)
A walk down to the beach on a cold afternoon amongst the tents being set up before City to Surf. I wonder if there will be another wild storm like last year that tore up anything man made on the shore.
Last week Bondi closed off Hall st (not intentionally and to the frustration of all the cars) to a music festival. We wondered down the st stopping every few meters to watch with a crowd around people pouring their musical wears onto anyone who would listen and potentially donate a few coins.It was a great way to end the afternoon
