Having returned to Sydney after a grace-filled Christmas break in the UK and Ars I am enjoying my first Australian summer. As you might imagine the beaches are the most popular places to be when temperatures rise. I took this photograph just by Bondi beach - a most unexpected sight. When I was a little boy in Leeds Peter Maturi could then still be seen treking round the streets with his push-bike and wheel sharpening knives door to door. I was amazed to see this skill alive and kicking at Bondi. Perhaps you might think that taking a knife to the beach is a good idea with all those sharks around; no, Bondi beach is surrounded by bars and restaurants and this young lady was offering them a very competative edge.
