Quote of the Day: A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.
Morning Class: Morning class today was surfing 1 with Mr. Dooley and the learn to surf team. We got down to the beach and got our boards, helmets and wet suits on. The waves were AMAZING, they were perfect for surfing. They first let us go into the water and have a go for 5 minutes, then we came out and they spoke about the technique. You could either jump straight us or slowly bring yourself up with your knees. I used the jump straight up way, because I thought it was a lot easier. Once we all had the technique we jumped back into the water. I stood up almost every wave. I rode down the drop standing up, all the way into sore. Then we came in for morning tea, which was apple cake. (YUM). When we got back out, there was a lul in the waves for a while. But once the set came back the waves were massive, We all caught lots. Mr. Dooley was really good it looked like he didn't even have to paddle, he just got straight onto the wave. Once we were done we had to pack up and head back to campus.
Afternoon Class: For afternoon class we had Photography with David Tatnall. We used film camera. He took us down to west cape, and we took some AMAZING photos. We took a few on the rocks, the pier and on the sand. I had a little trip on the rocks and grazed my ankle, but we could not go home without someone being hurt. Once that was all cleaned up I went for a walk along the rocks and there were star fish everywhere. I put one on my forehead and Mr. Tatnall, laughed. He spoke about having all the right lighting and the speed of the shitter.
Evening Class: For evening class last night we had David Tatnall showed us some of his beautiful work. He spoke about all the adventures he had been on through photo's. He had some really beautiful pieces of work, there was one where he had stopped on the side of the road on morning when the sun was still rising and there was fog everywhere he took on through the trees and it looked superb. That was an example of having the right lighting.
Daily Reflection Challenge: The good things that have happened to me this week was completing the expo. I was such an amazing experience and I had the best group of friends to encourage on another.
My highlights this week have been riding home from the expo. Because our team worked really well them, because we were all so tired and we all supported each other the hole way.
