THE FOLK OF BYRON BAY - AT THE START OF AUTUMN

Oooh, I love this time of the year.  The humidity dies down a little, the rains come and the air temperature resembles a good English Summer's Day - emphasis on good - especially in the mornings!  

So, I have been out and about, sometimes with my DSLR & sometimes just with my i-Phone 6 (let me know if you can spot the difference) accosting the locals at the various wonderful markets we have here: Byron's Farmers Market and Bangalow Market are where I met these happy folk.

The reason I have photographed these complete strangers is because every single one of them is 50+, they love colour, are in great shape (just look at the womens' legs!) and certainly inspire me to carry on swimming, walking & cycling every single day!  OK the sun shines all the time and it's always warm, but surely we can follow suit, wherever we live, by smiling more, eating locally & healthily, exercising daily & wearing colour - whatever the weather!
