Bondi Beach (Circa 2000)

Buy a print of this image

Here is an old photo from my time in Sydney, Australia.  (Digital cameras have come a long way!)

This is Bondi Beach which hosted Olympic beach volleyball in 2000 just before I arrived.   Of course, this beach was popular well before the Olympics decided to go there.  See the Bondi Stories web for history, lots of old photos,  and to see how the beach has transformed (and stayed the same) over time.

It's about time to start planning another trip Down Under.  We want to travel to Australia and New Zealand again while we're young enough to enjoy the outdoors activities!

Until next time...

Fountain From the Matrix - Woman in the Red Dress

Here is the fountain from the movie The Matrix complete with a woman in a red dress.  The fountain is located on Pitt Street in Sydney, Australia.

I took this several years ago in the year 2000.  It was only after I got home that I noticed the woman in the red dress.   Bear in mind the movie came out in 1999.

This photo has always given me a different meaning of The Matrix.   Maybe we are all just plugged in.

For those of you that may not have seen the movie or remember the scene, I'll put a YouTube clip below.
