i love this place, when the waves are flat and the sun is strong its the best way to hang out in the arvo or the weekend. its an ocean pool with a huge reef below. there are about a dozen big eastern blue gropers, giant fish, that cruise around. a couple are about 2 meters long. the labradors of the sea. they swim right up to you and you can touch them if your game.
all you need is some flippers, mask, snorkel, and some lungs. easy as that. this place hasn't changed in 40 years either, and its only 20mins from the sydney cbd and even better 10min from home.

i'm a bit addicted to black and white images at the moment. i love 'em. someone told me they were awesome because you can really tell the time of day with black and white. things seem more, simple. but i like that time can stand still. this could have been 40yrs ago. the buildings are the same. the concrete bench's were there then too. not many people. (this was a tues arvo, about 2pm). i feel alot more and see alot in b/w at the moment. simple? to me there's so much going on, there's so much colour, but there aint either. go figure.
