It’s amazing what you do when challenged in life.
Ever since starting some projects, I have always thought I should give myself a presence on the world wide web. For years I had avoided getting myself too ‘out there‘ on the Internet. Social networking sites like Facebook saw my account created, deleted, created and deleted again; but in light of recent major changes in my life, I thought it is time to get out in the world. Inspiration gave me a nudge recently when I had an article I wrote featured in a local news site.
Geographically the area is known as Coalcliff, and is the main photo you see on the Home Page. It was taken in the early morning of the 31st October 2010 around 7.20am from the Seacliff Bridge. It’s a beautiful part of the Illawarra Escarpment and a part of the coastline I enjoy.
You can see several surfers in the water, (black dots) enjoying a morning wave and have no idea I’ve snapped them in a photo; conversely, I have no idea who they are. I remember a school excursion to the rock shelf shown in the photo when I was very young. We’d be excited playing in the rock pools while trying to remove limpets and other seashells suctioned to rocks; finding sea urchins was fun too. Looking deeper into the photo, Bald Hill has some great history beneath it, buts that’s another story for another time. The wondrous Illawarra Escarpment.
