Adelaide uni student, Elja Parsons, captures her day in Bundeena during a visit to Sydney As a uni student based in Adelaide, Elja enjoys shooting images with high colour, high contrast and at close range. Here she experiments with her photography skills during a visit to Bundeena in Sydney’s south.

"The thing about Bundeena is that it is such a faultlessly beautiful place. You don’t even have to leave the ferry to be impressed with it.  I guess what I wanted to capture in many of my photos were the things that people tend not to look at when in such a place.  Like a leaf, some rope, old paint or the way the water ripples. I look for these sorts of things everywhere I go, it brings a very different perspective to the way you look at a place."
