Maroubra, Australia: From the supposed bad boy of Sydney, the eastern suburb of Maroubra is any but these days. Thanks to a limited number of beachside suburbs it was inevitable that Maroubra would join Coogee and Bondi as the place to be. Maroubra comes from an Aboriginal word which translates as ‘like thunder’, a very apt description as Maroubra is home to one of the most popular surfing locations in Sydney. I’m currently in Australia for three weeks, as I escape the madness of a Christmas in Wanaka. First stop was Melbourne where I spent a few days attending an old friend’s wedding, it was a perfect start to my break. Next stop was Sydney where am I currently catching up with old Fernie friends. It’s amazing that no matter how far and wide we spread, Fernie friends always find a way of meeting up. Next stop is Byron for Christmas and New Year, I am beyond stoked to be visiting an area I’ve heard so much about where so many of my best mates have called home. Photograph details: 1/250th sec, F11.0, ISO200, 14mm, shot using an Olympus OM-D EM5.
This Christmas I am in Australia, trying to avoid the cricket, sunburn and drinking too much – I am failing at all three things so far.

I am in the process of designing a new site, focused more on the photography side of things. I’ll still be blogging but I would like to integrate my photography shop into this main site. Watch this space.
