Evening, Photo Freaks. I was struggling for an I theme but Ideas are rippling in now. I‘m going with INDIVIDUALS. Some of the individuals of the Bellinger Valley. I will let you see what WE look like.
THE YAAN : And now for my 250 words about these individuals. Bellingen is known as an alternative community and there is quite a lot of off the grid living here. There’s also yuppies and country folk and straight people and farmers and coastal people.
GINA: came for lunch with me this morning at the new EMBASSY CAFÉ in URUNGA. We go back a decade or more and haven’t met often in the intervening years. Gina has oomph.
RUTH FAHEY: Is the beautiful young photographer who did a free shoot out here for me. She lives on a hill in Urunga, looking out to sea. I spotted her at the Jazz Festival Markets last week and grabbed a pic of her taking a pic of the band.
THE BUSKER: I don’t know the young lass but the Cheery Redhead loved her. I love music on the street.
MUZZA : The soundman.
HANNAH THE HAIRDRESSER:
CASSANDRA THE NIECE: She grew up in the Valley and has now travelled the world.
THE BELLINGEN SHOPPER: I don’t know her either but I love her freewheeling walk.
COLIN THE COFFEE MAN : I discovered him at his stall beside the Highway in Urunga.
