'The last of the beach-side shacks.'
Golden Beach, Caloundra, Qld.
This was a spontaneous creation made on the beach while on holiday recently on the Sunshine Coast. All items were found on the beach nearby, while walking my dog. It was her first ever time to the beach, and held many new smells for a young inquisitive dog, which gave me plenty of time to collect 'stuff'. I used to live up near this beautiful part of Queensland, and have many fond memories of spending time here whilst growing up. I was somewhat surprised by the changes I saw around me. While I understand that it is part of progress, it still saddens me to see that some of the simpler facets of life here have all but faded away. I guess you could say I was letting 'the child within' out to play, while my own child and dog were playing nearby. Part of me wanted to express the emotion of what I saw, and make some sort of statement about it, while another part just wanted to act like a kid again. :-)
