These two young boys were having the time of their life boogy board surfing on Nobbys Beach in Newcastle NSW Australia today (26/8/09). I sat for ages laughing at their antics and listening to their happy screams of joy – if only we could all be this carefree. It appears that one boy is laughing at the camera but I was too far away for him to have even known I was there! that’s the beauty of a zoom lens.
The image was taken mid afternoon with a perfect sky, using the Nikon D90, 18-270 mm Tamron lens, ISO 400, F11 with the lens fully wound out to 270.
If anyone knows these boys, please put them in touch with me as I would love to give them some of the images I took today. These boys have now been identified as Lachlan Griffiths and Jacob Jones – thanks to Darcy Walker who recognised them … I had the honour of dropping off copies of my work to Jake and I think I enjoyed the experience just as much as he did … keep enjoying yourself boys
