Photographer's Note

Traveling in a fried-out combie
On a hippie trail, head full of zombie
I met a strange lady, she made me nervous
She took me in and gave me breakfast.
And I said,

"Do you come from a land down under?
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."

Buying bread from a man in Brussels
She was six-foot-four and full of muscles
I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
She just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
And she said,

"I come from a land down under
Where beer does flow and men chunder

Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover."



what it is all about?
Vegemite is a dark brown Australian food paste made from yeast extract. It is a spread for sandwiches, toast, crumpets and cracker biscuits as well as a filling for pastries.
Vegemite is made from brewers' yeast extract, a by-product of beer manufacturing, various vegetables, wheat and spice additives. It is salty, slightly bitter and malty, and rich in umami – similar to beef bouillon. The texture is smooth and the product is a paste.
It sounded not inviting to me, I saw it always for breakfast but had no courage to try.
After the sunrise photo session in Coogee (with tripods !) Lisa invited me for breakfast and asked if I knew Vegemite. No - I said. You MUST - she said. And she gave me a Vegemite sandwich. [And she didn't speak my language :)]. It was not so bad! I am happy that I tried it.

THANK YOU, LISA!!
