From a balcony, I snapped a man shaking sand from his towel and a lady drying off at in the late afternoon light yesterday afternoon on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.
The famous Main Beach Bakery, a picture I snapped at sundown. Best bread, top pies, sausage rolls and pasties and all things bread. The MBB is so wonderful it should be made a tourist attraction. Gold Coast, Australia.
A wonderful happy face I snapped on the streets. You beauty. Queensland, Australia.
Snapped this young lady crossing the road at Main Beach on a wonderful spring afternoon on the Gold Coast. Queensland, Australia. Wonderful.
Snapping pictures from a balcony in Main Beach on the Gold Coast. Yep, there’s a lot going on in this picture – but that’s life at the top. Queensland. Australia.
I spotted this surf patrol vehicle patrolling the beach early this morning while I was on Main Beach looking for pictures to snap. I stood on the tracks and was ready to walk away as it got closer. But the vehicle veered to the left and went around me. How wonderful. They didn’t use their blinkers. Queensland, Australia.
This is MICK BARNES, my friend, and a mate to hundreds of writers, journalists and photographers – in fact a mate to all and sundry. I had lunch with Mick and his son Peter Barnes (a paparazzi) at a pub a few days ago on the Gold Coast. We had bangers, mash, gravy and vegetables. When I asked Mick to smile while I snapped his picture, he told me he didn’t smile. But I made him smile. Easy. Mick is a playwright, a newspaper journalist and among other things, a television scriptwriter, columnist and theatre critic. He is 80 – and even though he had a preemptive wake, he is fit and well and still as witty as a bastard. Google Mick and see what he has achieved. Barnesy you bastard – you beauty! Queensland, Australia.
A reflection I snapped of an early morning walker on the Broadwater in Southport on the Gold Coast. Love it. Queensland, Australia.
A really wonderful I snapped one afternoon next to the Sand Pumping Jetty on the magic Gold Coast Spit. Hooray. Queensland, Australia.
There was no boat being tossed across the stormy sea this morning at Main Beach on the Gold Coast. It was as calm as a clam in a shell. Queensland, Australia. Yah.
