But where? I think you have left Barcelona far behind.
‘…summer in the city, back of my neck getting dirty and gritty…’
Bondi, bloody boring Bondi.
I have, of course heard of Bondi Beach, which I am sure would interest me for a day or so (I have never been to Australia), but I took a look on the web to see what else Bondi may have to offer and immediately found: “In 2007, the Guinness World Record for the largest swimsuit photo shoot was set at Bondi Beach, with 1,010 women wearing bikinis taking part.” Oh dear… Although I daresay that might also interest me for a short while, there is so MUCH MUCH more of interest in the photos on your blog. You may well be the best thing that Bondi has to offer. Best that I’ve ever found for sure, although my knowledge of the place is, as you can see, limited 🙂
What next for Bondi? 1011 women wearing bikinis? Or 1012 men wearing bikinis? Play to your strengths Bondi… and good luck
Ha ha ha ha! First I’ve heard of the Guinness record, but I bet many of the participants were back packers. But only 1010, you say?
As I said, though, there’s the view of the sky over the sea, the air and I like to walk along the coastal pathway, which in fact I’ve not done for months.
I think I’ll put it on my list..
And the sea and the waves of course, surfers’ delight.
I don’t get in the sea, it’s sticky. It can ‘dump’ you, me. That’s when you see a big wave coming at you and you’re not close enough to jump over it and you need to go under it but that’s a bit scary so you just just stand and look at it and here it comes and there you are not knowing which way is up in the swirl and the bump bump bump and then you are back out of the washing machine with your bikini awry and full of sand.
Or, you could go to Tamarama beach and get stuck in a rip and be terribly grateful when a life guard spots you swimming, getting pulled back, swimming, getting pulled back, and comes and helps you back.
I like reading books in my room. 🙂
Bondi gets more and more upmarket now, big new buildings going up, street furniture vanished, ‘High St’ shops and brands have crept from the main road up into what used to have more privately owned businesses and more of a community feel.
I spend most of my time reading and takng photos. 🙂
It’sgood to have the Bonid Gallery of Modern Street Art so close to you. Love it!
Just as well: I don’t much like Bondi save the big sky and the clean, fresh air.
This one actually came from the same shot as ‘Abstract 06/11/2012’. Neither look like what was there. 🙂
But it has such wonderful graffiti, and holes in walls and doors, and crumbling walls… all so you can regale us with your eye for interesting and beautiful.
Ha ha, thank you, Ellie. 🙂
By the way, I just fished this comment out of the spam.
I find this happening more and more, with various bloggers including myself at other sites.
Looks like the Summer of Love (67).
😀 I can imagine a whole mixed casette tape to go with this now you’ve said that.
I’d make a little cover for it from this image if I still did such things.
(I’ll happily trade you our rapidly approaching winter for a bit of your summer! 😉 )
I wouldn’t mind that. 🙂
i feel in the same way
Hello and welcome, (b)ananarista. 🙂
I would be more than happy to swap a bit of Australian spring/summer for a piece of Italian autumn/winter.
tha italian autumn is wainting for you 🙂
Excellent, now I just need the air fare. 🙂
Good one, again.
Thank you, Sean.
