I was going to name this image ‘The Long, Hot Summer’, but I discovered there was an American and an Australian movie made with the same name. So I settled for ‘The Bloody Long, Hot Bastard Summer’. I think that name is more suitable. I snapped this image at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast, Australia.
What exposure did I use for this picture? I have no idea. It was a point and shoot type situation. I had the early morning sun on full beam saturating my lens and a couple of surfers going past so I snapped a picture anyway. But I think I got it. Gold Coast, Queensland.
A walk by the water is just a walk in the park – really. Snapped this image on the fabulous Gold Coast in the early morning light.
Lunch time is feeding time on the Gold Coast according to tourists who visit the Gold Coast. And in this picture we have a messy eater. Because of the fat content, gulls and various other sea birds love potato chips (fries). They would go to battle for a hot chip. Gold Coast, Australia.
I snapped this image early morning at the wonderful Gold Coast Spit. Queensland, Australia.
The song title is ‘Red Sails in the Sunset’, but I have red sails without a sunset which I snapped on the Gold Coast Broadwater. Queensland, Australia.
A black swan with a halo I snapped just across the park from where I live on the Gold Coast, Australia. The halo is caused by a ripple in the water distorting the swan’s reflection. How about that?
Antonios Xalas is originally from a small village in Greece. In the early 60s he moved to Sydney where he opened a popular fish and chip shop in Manly. He is 73 years-of-age, married with two sons. Since 1974, he has been the priest of the Greek Orthodox Church of Resurrection in the hills of Ermoupolis, Syros, which was built in 1870. When asked if I could go into the church to take a look and snap a few pictures his comment was, “One or two.” On the way out I asked could I snap some photographs of him, his answer was, “Yes, one or two.”
Look what I snapped early yesterday morning – yep, it’s another pelican at the beach. But this one is skimming the waves. Yippee! Gold Coast, Australia.
The need for speed – and this little white woofer needed all the speed it could muster to get away from the speedy black woofer. Gold Coast, Australia.
