Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

This weeks photo challenge theme is quite convenient – for me at least!

Last weekend I spent Friday and Saturday night in Apollo Bay with my partner Strobe, because he won second prize in the Greens Art Prize, and two nights accommodation was the prize (pretty good prize)!

Apollo Bay is a coastal town along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia, and is a popular tourist destination for international and local tourists. During the winter months its resident population is around 2,000, but come summer this explodes to 15,000 – 20,000! Luckily we were there just before this explosion.

So the photo challenge ‘renewal’ theme has a double meaning for me : first it coincides with a relaxing and renewing weekend away, strolling along the beach, sleeping in, coffee on the promenade, yummy restaurants and taking photos!

Secondly, the constant renewal of the environment by Mother Nature. As well as personal renewal, the photos I am sharing depict detail images of the ever changing shoreline. As tides flow in and flow out coastal debris becomes ensnared in damp sand, forming mini organic installations. And each day these spontaneous ephemeral artworks created by Mother Nature are renewed, fresh and invigorated for the next beach comber.

  1. The coastline is a wonderful theme for renewal – it is never the same (even moment after moment) 😀
