Surf Addicts

There were some decent-sized, smooth waves rolling in along the stretch of beach from Bar Reef to Merewether. So while I was exploring the beach looking for landscape shots, I’d look out to sea occasionally and switch my attention to capturing surfing/action shots for a while.

Bar Beach, Australia.

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    Just in love with these multi shot works of yours. I enjoy so much the variety. Excellent! xo

  • Many thanks! :))x I feel that I could do more to break up the edges of these collages (out of their rigid rectangular format), but I’ll have to perk up my motivation to do so. :(( [ :)) ]

    nicely made collage here James, the texture makes it even more unique and artsy

  • Thank you Solomon! There was a lot of fiddling with this one – the colours in some images hardly work well with any textures at all, but in the end I found one that suited it.
