Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Lifeguard

Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise, Queensland, Australia

I like to take a brisk walk each morning, whether at home or on holiday.  One recent morning while holidaying on the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia I passed this lifeguard tower at Surfers Paradise Beach and noticed an elderly couple toweling down after an early morning swim.  The thought of these people swimming on an unpatrolled beach known for its tidal rips and powerful surf surprised me at first, but their seeming comfort with the surroundings gave the appearance that they may have done this many times before.  The radiating shadows cast by the early morning sun helped to put the scene into context.
