A day at bondi…a christmas gift idea

Posted on November 26th, 2010

Every few weeks or so I feature one of Eugene Tan’s wonderful beach pictures on this site. I know many of you love them. Woah!, now you can buy the book.

Uge has become a great mate after years of running into him down at Bondi in the mornings where, for the past 11 years, he’s been found taking beautiful pictures of people being happy in water… which he then posts on his site aquabumps. 40,000 people check in each morning to view his work. And thousands have bought his over-sized prints. I’ve seen them hung around the world.

You might recall, I’ve written about Uge before. He taught me about “checking in with your inside people“. And I can safely say, Uge is one of the happiest people I know. He smiles when he surfs. It shows in his book. Alex-Kiss

I reckon it’d make a great Christmas present. Happy, fresh, summery. This you might like to know:

* It’s a massive coffee-table spectacular (almost a metre across when open).

* It’s designed by Ant Donovan

* It’s $150 and you can buy it in Uge’s gallery on Curlewis St or here:

Have a great Friday xxxxxx

    Thanks Sarah,
    After reading this I went over there today and bought it. And I met Eugene too – what a beautiful person he is, so grounded and happy.
    Thanks again.

    Eugene Tans website and daily email reminds me everyday of how beautifu Bondi is….Living so far away from Sydney these days, it helps alot knowing i can get a special glimpse of the people, surf, ocean and thoughts everyday before work. So thankyou Eugene and most of all, Sarah for leading me to yet another aspiring blog. Thankyou!!
