I have just returned from spending a week in Sydney where I was catching up with good friends I had not seen for five years. I took this series of photos at Manly Beach on the 1st March 2011. It was a sizzling hot day and I had just farwelled my friend who was visiting Sydney from England. It was perfect day for a swim in the ocean. The sea was so inviting but I did not have my swimmers so I had to make do with walking in the water at the sea edge and taking photos of the playfulness and joy of the Sydney Siders enjoying the refreshing vitality of the Ocean. All these photos were taken at a distance to subjects and are candid.
