Pyrite

I met this chunk before Christmas last year, shortly after I drew this.

It is just as good to hold in my hand and it chuckles me my guts.  I can not explain well but this is how I feel.  It’s like this guy talks to my solar plexus.

I feel a bit sorry for this having byname; ‘Fool’s Gold (as it looks like a real gold but has no value as gold) ‘.

Well, I am happy to be the one though because I certainly see the value on this.  🙂

LIFE GUARD3

This was literally the first shot I took in Gold Coast.

We took a very early flight (departed Sydney at 6:10am) and put our luggage onto the accommodation to head to a local cafe (a particular cafe which my friend loves) for the breakfast.  I caught this on our way to the cafe walking along the beach.

I thought this photo was as good in contrast of bright yellow of Life Guard shed in the bright blue sky.  Then I turned it into black and white, and found it good too.

Can you see the skyline of high-rise buildings?  The symbolic Surfers Paradise skyscrapers never get absent its existence, but it actually helped me to make my photo a little bit unique in perspectives.  Yes, they are caught in frame in number of photos I took in GC.  😉  I will share a few more in later posts…

Coolangatta at sunset

Here are a little more photos of sunset beach at Coolangatta.  I stepped down to the beach from Pat Fagan Park after I took a few photos from, which you can see some on here .

I don’t need anything in front of the nice sunset (and sunrise too!).  They just adore me and I am lost sense of times completely…always!  And this evening stopped me from thinking about anything but just sticking the view in making sequel changes every second.

I hope you will enjoy the scenes too.  🙂

Coolangatta into golden hours

I flew up to my first Gold Coast trip with my friend last week.  This was made her last trip in Australia before she left.

Funny that I had never tried GC in my holidays list in the past and people were surprised at that for the years long of me living in Australia.

My stereotype image of GC was just Surfers Paradise, which does not interest me to visit that much ( and very sorry for those who like there).  However, the area at Coolangatta was very relaxing and we had great short holiday with full of laugh and joy.  I appreciated her to choose there and gave me the opportunity to go to.

Below were taken in golden hours at Pat Fagan Park.  I love these shots because of the silhouette of people at the beach and some magical lights shed in there.  I will be posting a bit more photos in later posts, so I hope I can share some fun with you.

First shot taken at Pat Fagan Park.  Water made nice reflection of the afternoon light.

The silhouette of a father and a kids is my favorite

Bright afternoon in blue and gold

This was taken at The Rocks, Sydney on last weekend.  Lots of buildings in Sydney city were shone by afternoon sunlight.

The contrast of colors between foreground in gold and background of blue sky was quite impressed to me. I did not have my DSLR with me but my old iPhone did a fair work like below, I think… :-).

It was warm winter afternoon and the crowd around the area was frolic with wines and foods as served by number of stalls at the site. The photo was caught when the light started dimming toward evening. It was a lucky shot, I caught. 🙂

A winter sunrise and morning surf

This is a throwback from last winter; July 2017 at Manly Beach, which I just dug up while tidying (or try to do..) my drawer recently.

It was a crisp morning with rough choppy waves banged onto the beach.

The golden morning stuck me on, I could not move but taking morning sunshine over the face for a while.

This photo reminds me of myself being off from sunrise / early morning photography recently.  It may turn to kick me out of bed in one early morning sometime soon..  🙂

Sydney Harbour at sunrise 1

One morning I got up early to catch some moment of Sydney Harbour at sunrise.  I think I took some photos fanatically, and I will start posting them in here.

I see always a good beginning of story at Sydney Harbour, something like, the day has begun or, the life changes from static to dynamic.

Anyway, here are that I caught the sunrise at the harbour over the little lighthouse.
