My Beach of Yesteryear

Michael John

Oatley, Australia

Artist's Description

Austinmer is one of my favourite beaches. As a child, I spent many summer holidays there with my family. We stayed in an old house on the southern headland. I learnt to swim in the baths and enjoyed the sand and surf.

I thought that this would be a good opportunity to depict the image in sepia, as that is what the photos looked like back in the 60s and early 70s.

Dedicated to my family, in memory of the beach from yesteryear…….

Austinmer is located south of Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Canon 400D, altered with sepia tones.
