Painted Figures Guard This Doorway
While the Authorblog clan kicked up our collective heels in Sydney last week, we took the time to visit Bondi beach with friends. And just to prove that a camera is a perfect accessory to any sartorial tastes, yes, I had my Pentax slung around my neck while we re-acquainted ourselves with the perfect sand and shoreline.
This doorway must have once been a storage area. It is recessed into a concrete wall that is the last manmade structure before your feet kiss the endless sand on the crescent-shaped beach. I was really interested in the expressions on the faces of the two painted sprites that seemed to be tasked with guarding the doorway.
The green object with a red lid is a garbage bin (or a "trash can", depending on which part of the world you live in) . It is one of many in the vicinity, ensuring that no rubbish gets onto the sand or into the water.
Just before I walked away, I shot a second frame to include a second garbage bin (the colour-coded lids dictate what sort of garbage, be it rubbish or recycling objects, goes into each).
If you look closely at the frame below, you'll see evidence that there is a set of steps leading to the main car park. Let me know if you spotted the railing and the person walking up the stairs, or if your eye was drawn to the second bin instead.
