UP THE COAST
Scenes from the Australian Coastland, at Alexandra Headlands and Shorncliffe. Taken with a Nikkon SLR in 2016, 2015 and 2018, and edited in Photoshop.
I wanted to capture the nostalgic atmosphere of the Australian Coastline that was a large part of my childhood. Holidays at the beach were something I always looked forward to when I was young. My family would take a trip away each year when I was in early primary, and, much to my excitement, this frequently involved taking a week or two off school. Being somewhat older, my parents favoured a more relaxing holiday, and so our activities ranged from bush walking, strolls across the beach, and visits to the local market.
As we weren't particularly wealthy, the places we tended to visit were in some ways removed from the bustling life of the city and surrounding suburbs. Old corner shops and take-outs still used old furniture and decor, so it often felt like we were taking a trip to the past as well. While some places have changed from when I visited in my childhood, other parts have stayed the same.
