It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted on here! I’ve been waiting to finish my roll of film before I made this post. Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been to the beach three times. It’s starting to warm up here and I’ve been lucky enough to get to the beach (its only about an hour’s drive).
Going to the beach is one of my fav things to do. I feel so calm when I’m at the beach (which is always a good thing). There are so many things that I love about being there – the sound of the waves crashing up against the shore, the sweet sweet fresh air, getting into the water and bobbing up and down on those nice lil waves etc etc.
One of my favourite beaches is wategos beach in byron bay. Trust me when I say it’s one of the most beautiful beaches ever. For some reason I don’t have a decent photo of me there but here is one from the internet:
One of my other favourite beaches is burleigh heads – on the gold coast which is where I’ve been to lately. It’s not too far away and I like getting there earlyish in the morning – have a quick swim, a nice lunch and then get home in the early afternoon. The last times I’ve been there the water has been a little chilly for my liking but still lovely times. It’s a pretty popular beach – but for good reason. The views are amazing and the vibe is pretty relaxed. There are also a bunch of nice shops close-by with some good lunch options. Bonus – there are lots of (cute) surfers to watch while you’re there. Here are some of the film photos I took over the last couple of times there:
Here’s a bonus picture of when I went to tallebudgera beach (another beach in the gold coast) with my dad, sister and of course my two favourite boys (freddy and paddy). I only took one because it was the last one left in the roll.
Not all the photos turned out exactly how I wanted them to – some were a little too overexposed and others a little underexposed. They’re never going to all turn out perfect but that’s kinda why I like film. You don’t have the opportunity to adjust everything and take loads of photos just to pick out one that you like. You take a photo and hope for the best. But I feel pretty happy with how most of them turned out. I can’t wait to go to the beach more often – relax, go for a swim and hang out with friends and family.
