Ocean watching at Maroubra Headlands



I promised I would post more work, more often, so here it is. Although not as comprehensive as the last photo essay (Bombo), this photo set was from my most recent photo mission.

Ocean watching is probably one of my favourite things to do. People often go turn to the ocean when they're troubled. I feel the ocean has a way of staring back at you, reflecting the chaos in your thoughts. The smashing waves and the explosive energy is strangely calming, and I know I'm not alone in thinking this. Plus they make for pretty great photos. I love the texture and their other worldly feel!

Pretty broody, I know, but the main reason why I came out here was get some images for a collaborative side project that I'm working on with @lovefromria ( It's a sequence x lettering/type project, so keep an eye out for it in the near future!

On the eastern coast of Australia, surf season usually starts near winter, so you'll see a tonne more surfers out there during this time (above). Further up from Maroubra Beach is a small park and headland where you can get a pretty good view of the smashing waves (below).


Just before I left I caught this sweet sunset! Hope you enjoyed this short photo essay.
