More LYNXPERX

Came home from Luddenham and this metal box was at my doorstep.

Mia, having a good sniff!

Enough hair goods to last me a year, easy!

A few posts down I mentioned getting a lovely care package from LYNX. Today I came home to another package. The goods once again came in next level packaging, last time there were 2 wooden boxes, this time around the goods came in a very impressive metal box which unfolded to reveal hair products, which I totally intend to use!

Finished off with a great pub meal at The Historic Como Hotel.

Lovely place, shame about all the power lines!

Celebrated Eddie’s B’Day with Clay Shooting yesterday. Have never shot a gun before (was inevitable, right?!), was mad fun. I loved it!

I got there a little early, and walking around the car park seeing so many guys with guns out just felt so surreal. Seeing guns on picnic tables, guns everywhere! Shooting and hitting targets was actually easier than I thought it would be (I was prepared to not hit a thing!). Recoil wasn’t bad at all (was worse in my mind), though it was funny watching it catch a few people off guard! Ejecting shells is mad! Smells so good too! Highly recommend it for anyone who’s never had a go, we all paid around $100/head and they use competition bullets made in Italy, considering they’re about $1.50/$2/bullet and you get 40 or so shots, that’s great value!

Haircut at Shinka

tomo_haircut
The mullet was back, in full force, so I had to book in somewhere to get my haircut. Previously only Mimi at DJ’s cut my hair (I cut my own hair, and she’s the first hairdresser to cut it since I was 15 or so!). Mimi’s in Japan though, so Nanami put me on to her personal hairdresser, Tomo at Shinka in the Galleries. Tomo was awesome, the venue’s light and bright and damn that head massage! Highly recommend!

RIP Beach Aquariums

10555068_10152565236878259_887531953_n
Goodbye Beach Aquariums.

My dad’s old aquarium shop in Bondi Beach has shut it’s doors for good. My Dad left it back in the 80′s and gave the business to my Uncle John who’s been running it ever since.

Amazingly, over the years John never did anything with the shop, he basically just ran it and never cleaned or maintained it. I remember playing in the little rock garden in the front of the store as a little kid. That painting on the glass was really vibrant once upon a time!!!

Sad, but hey, it had to happen. Bondi Beach is being overtaken by hipster cafe’s and the rent has gone through the roof over the years.

RUFUS

Stonefield - Potrait

After what feels like years, we finally got to see RÜFÜS the other night at the Enmore Theatre. It was glorious, we were all in love, if anything I felt like my body was a burden, that it was just in the way of me connecting even further with the music in my ears.

I wanted to shut my eyes, but the LED lightshow created by award-winning art and design studio ENESS was just so well choreographed, absolutely mesmerising.

Not much more to say, we needed that. Sound was great, crowd was great. Imaginary Air was amazing. We’re SO proud of the boys!

Pew! Pew! Pew!

lightningbolts_transfer
Placement right the second time, was great to have Josh and Loic both make sure symmetry was right.

tora_sumi_justinfox_lightning_bolt_tattoo
It’s been around 20 years since I got my last tattoo’s. I’d totally forgotten what the pain felt like. The outline was a sharp feeling, the colouring in a much nicer pain. It all just felt really good!

tora_sumi_justinfox_lightning_bolt_tattoo_2
Done in no time, super tight work by Josh. Pew Pew Pew! Let me elbow you!

krysti_tatto_2
Next up was Krysti who was getting one of her own pieces on her forearm.

krysti_tatto_1
Her original drawing was reduced 20% before final placement.

krysti_tatto_4
Reducing the size of the piece didn’t phase Josh, who put an amazing amount of detail into such a small piece.

krysti_tatto_3
Krysti’s worn these same shoes for all times she’s ever gotten tattoos done.

krysti_tatto_5
Amazing detail. Keep in mind that Krysti in tiny, the hand is the size of a 5cent piece.

krysti_tatto_6
Krysti was super happy with the end result.

Today Krysti and I were booked in to get tattoos at Tora Sumi.  Krysti got one of her original pieces done (she’s rad like that) and I wanted little lightning bolts on my elbows, something I’ve wanted for ages, so long ago now I can’t even remember why I wanted them!

Was such a cool experience, from start to end. Hours later my elbows feel sunburnt, and I already want more ink!

I don’t ever wish to shoot a wedding (too much responsibility!), but Garth and Val’s wedding was so sweet I couldn’t help but snap a couple of shots! :)

PS: Shot with the GF1 not the GF6!
