Wave and Soul
I have not taken many shots over the last few weeks and as Spring is casting her soft veil over Bondi I have been doing a spring clean of the 'archives' - so interesting for me to go back to my early photos from when I started late last year. I had no idea of when I got my first camera what I was going to take shots of , all I knew is that I wanted to start. I called myself Rosiebondi as it seemed simple when I signed up to flickr and I had no idea that I would fall head over heels in love in a whole new way with the area that I live in and the beaches and even more so the ocean which I have always loved being close to and being in.
This shot was taken on one of the first days that I brought my camera to the beach and took shot after shot and when I got home and uploaded the shots I suddenly really understood the photographic term 'capture' . When I look at this particular shot , there is a point right where the wave is curling that I get lost in and where time stands still and where, to me, the very soul of the ocean expresses itself. Since that day I have been captured by photography and specifically taking shots of the ocean, the light and the beach - I am a very willing and happy slave :).
