Photographer's Note

On Saturday, Lisa took me for sunrise photo near Opera. The next day we went even earlier to see Coogee beach. I saw earlier some photos of the rock pool there and I made also virtual walk in Google, so it seemed to me as if I was there before. When we came the sky seemed uninteresting, with many grey clouds. Later we saw some colours. I was not much interested in the famous pool. It was high tide and the ocean was rather angry, so I was fascinated with the broader view. It seemed a bit cold so I was surprised to see a lone surfer. I liked the view of him struggling with waves. Then I wanted to see how is the water and Lisa took this photo of me. Lisa and earlier Klaudio seemed impressed that I didn't care about wet feet and shoes. But nothing strange in it. I saw a lot of beaches in Australia, in fact, most Australian live near the beaches, but I had not much opportunity to try a bath in them. In many places they were dangerous because of sharks, crocodiles and box jelly fish. Even if they were safe I had no time or it seemed cold. During all this time I could swim only once - on Great Barrier Reef, and as they warned against jelly fish, I had to wear the suit for the whole body (funny look it was).
After shooting Lisa invited me for breakfast and encouraged me to taste Vegemite. It was fun! I found it also amusing that she is a bit younger than my son, I could be her Mom :).
