Atmosphere

Morning peeps,

How is everyone today?

What a lovely start of the day!

For a change, I took my sexy Olympus water housing for a swim. Taking photos in the water is by far the most challenging way to capture images. When you think that you’ve nailed a shot, you have droplets on the lens and that ruins the whole shot. Fun stuff I can tell ya!

One of the things that I love the most about my morning routine is the atmosphere. Just a bunch of happy people that love to start their days by the beach. I guess that’s what we call “Vitamin Sea”?! Love to meet all these friendly and salty faces in the morning!

My apologies for the late update but I had a couple of early meetings. For the ones that were very impatient to see the photos, you should definitely subscribe to the newsletter as the photos will come straight at you. No need to refresh your browser every 5 minutes to see if you’ve made the cut today or not. ;)

Have a cracking day my friends,

Ciao,

Amo

PS: Still no official answer to my question from last night. Does anyone know? The only bits of information that I could find about Ben Buckler Amateur Fishing Club is this old article dating from 2016.

Morning my friends,

How is everyone this morning?

Another beautiful sunrise down in Paradise. Hope you had a chance to see it, if not, don’t worry I have heaps of photos for you this morning.

For a change, I went down the beach with my daughter and even went for a swim with her. It was packed with surfers, hence the ‘ding town’. I know that sharing is caring but today people were caring way too much!!!

Have a great day and go for an afterwork swim if you can,

Ciao,

Sweet

Morning my friends,

What a sweet Friday!

It’s on days like these that I just don’t want to leave the beach. It was just too good this morning, for a few reasons!

#1 - Today is Friyeah!!

#2 - I was with four of my mates and we did some run-swim-runs!

#3 - The sunrise was a cracker and the water super-fine!

#4 - Heaps of happy people all around, ie. heaps of photo opportunities!

#5 - I met my new besties Akvile & Greta from Lithuania.

I guess that’s enough reasons…

Talking about sweet, yesterday arvo, I was invited to the incredible launch of the AllBirds Sugar Zeffers thongs in Point Pipper. The thongs are made of sugar, no joke! Read more at the bottom of this page and if you want to see how sweet was the partay, check my Instagram Stories before it disappears. Tough gig! :)

BOOM!

Have a fabulous weekend my good friends!

Golden Summer

Morning my fellow Bondi lovers,

How good is the weather and water at the moment?! Now that’s what I call Summer!!

Last night, we went for a swim after-work with the fam. So nice to finish your day like this! Thanks to Uge for capturing this special moment with my girls. Love it! :)

The light was sun-sational last night, so I took a few photos myself. You might have already seen them on Insta, Facebook or Twitter - if not, go for it!

This morning, the light was pretty much the same but coming from the other way. Sun sets in South Bondi and rises from North Bondi. Either way, it’s such a nice show to watch!

Have a fantastic day my friends and chat to you tomorrow,

Locals

Morning my friends,

How is everyone today?!

This morning was just perfect, the weather was a cracker, we had a good gym session down at the jungle gym in North Bondi and I bumped into all the usual suspects.

Besides the fact that I get to hang out with all my good mates before work, one of the things that I love the most about my morning routine is that I get to chat with all the locals. Since I’ve started Morning Bondi eight years ago, I have probably met more than 100 people down the beach. Some born and bred here, some like me, who made Bondi Beach their home for quite a while. We are all pretty damn lucky to live in this little bubble!

I simply love meeting new people and getting to know their back stories. A few years ago, I was even thinking about creating a blog called “People of Bondi” a la “Humans of New York” but decided against for a few reasons. First, I’m not enough of a good portrait photographer and second Morning Bondi is already “sucking” a lot of my time.

I guess that’s it for today… If you live local and see me in the morning, come and say ‘hi’ and let’s have a laugh!

Chat to you tomorrow,

xoxo

Morning my friends,

How was your weekend guys? Ready for the week?

Mine was not bad at all, filled with surfing, a birthday celebration at Totti’s (the new Merivale joint in Bondi - love this place) and I crossed the bridge to go to Kirribilli Market on Sunday.

When I arrived down the beach this morning it was all grey and dark but around 7am, the sun took over and it was just gorgeous. The surf was looking pretty good too - I would have loved to go for a surf. To be frank, most mornings I wish I had my board with me to catch a couple…

Have a lovely day my friends and chat tomorrow,

Ciao,

Amaury

PS: Have you seen the photo that I posted on Instagram on Saturday. Pretty mad, ehh?!

Haar

Morning my friends,

Haar, no don’t worry, I’m not about to spit but just describing the phenomenon that we had today, also called ‘sea fret’ according to my good friend Wikipedia. Basically Bondi Beach was covered in fog because of the warm air and the cold water.

Today marks the first day back to our usual Morning Bondi routine:

5:30am - Wake-up

6am - 6:45am - Exercise, down in the jungle gym

6:45am-7:20am - Coffee, photos, chit chat with the locals and finish off with a swim

Then it’s the usual rush from 7:30am till the moment I write this (incredible) blog post, newsletter, social posts… Today, I’m a bit late as I had a couple of meetings first.

I guess that’s all you need to know for today.

Actually, one last thing, if you live in the Eastern Suburbs you might have received in your mailbox a copy of Local East Magazine. I was lucky enough to have one of my shots making the front cover and another one within the magazine. If you don’t live in the East, here it is for you: front cover, edito with beautiful words from Lizzie Meryment the publisher who called me ‘Mr Bondi’ (loved it!) and the other double-spread shot.

Very proud of it! :)

Have a lovely day my friends,

Amaury aka Amo aka Mr Bondi ;)

Hello 2019

Morning my friends,

Happy New Year!

Long time no speak… Hope you all had a wonderful break and a great Christmas & New Year’s Eve!

Mine was extremely relaxing, just surfing, spending quality time with my family and friends, BBQs and celebrations!

I only took three times my camera down the beach, on Christmas Day, one random day when I was heading to Gordons Bay and on New Year’s Day. The beach was packed!

Here is a selection of some of them that you might have already seen on Instagram and a couple more!

Thanks for your ongoing support and I wish you all the best for 2019!

BOOM!

Lots of love,

Morning my good friends,

Long time no speak… My apologies but you can only blame the weather on that one!

As you might see in my Instagram Stories, even when the weather is not looking at its best, I’m still going down the beach but I basically don’t bother taking my camera out of my bag.

Today, I was up at 5:15am and so ready to finally see a bit of sunshine. The sunrise was a cracker, the temperatures perfect and the swim so refreshing!

Waking up with a splash of salt water is by far the best thing to do in the morning!

Enjoy the photos and chat to you tomorrow - weather permitting obviously!

Ciao,

Amo

PS: My apologies for the late update but I’ve got back to back meetings all morning. I’m right now sitting in a Uber, heading all the way to a client in Gordon.

Morning my friends,

This morning started pretty grey with not much going on except probably that there was a 8 foot grey white caught in the net in Tamarama. It was the talk of the town - fair enough!

I didn’t bother taking my camera out of my bag, just my Pixel phone to capture a video, you can see it in my Story.

However, how good was the weather on Saturday and Sunday - very hard to beat. It was an ace weekend! We started our weekend down at the Icebergs - god I love this pool!

Here are the photos that I took down there, don’t tell anyone as you are not meant to take photos with a DSLR, just phones and GoPros. Ooppss!

Have a great week,

Ciao!

Morning my friends,

Hope you all had a good night sleep and excited that it’s Friday!

When I was about to step out of my place at 5:15am, my daughter was waiting for me next to the entrance and keen to go down the beach with me - cute! So here goes my plan to see the sun rising above the ocean but ehh, I see it everyday anyway…

So we ventured down to join our friends Magnus, Julie and Simon for coffee and swim. I absolutely love seeing my daughter playing in the sand.

Anyhow, have a beautiful weekend guys and chat to you on Monday,

Morning my friends,

All the shots below have been shot before 6am (hence the title of the blog post). Woke-up at 5:15am and rushed straight to the beach as I knew it was going to be a cracker - and BOOM, it was indeed!

When I arrived around 5:30am, Uge and Adam were already there with their tripods out ready to snap away. Are we all crazy to wake up at the crack of dawn to capture the sunrise - most probably but it’s well worth it!

Once the photos done and dusted at 5:55am, I joined my mate Magnus for a bar session in North Bondi, swim and coffee - so efficient and all that before 7:30am!

Have a cracking day my friends and chat to you tomorrow as always,

Ciao!

Reminders

Morning my friends,

Well well well… I basically missed the sunrise this morning as I was still at home looking after my daughter who has decided since a few days that waking at 5:15am like her daddy was the right thing to do. I told her several times that I was cray-cray but ehh what can I do?! The future of Morning Bondi is looking bright!

When I arrived down the beach around 6:10am, it was all pretty grey with not much colours going on (check my Instagram Story if you really want to see it).

Instead, here is a selection of photos from the 1.83 terabytes of archives that I’ve got…

Also as the blog title suggests, I have a few things to remind you:

  • Ho ho ho! Christmas orders are still possible but it’s getting very tight for international postage (assuming that Australia Post will follow, there are only a couple of days left). If you fancy a photo, get in touch asap.

  • A bit less than 2 days to enter the Summer Essentials Giveaway. You can enter right HERE to be in the draw to win $1,000 worth of goodies. You just need to fill out your details. Too easy!

  • As some of you might have read on last Friday’s post, the fine team at blinq art is throwing a party to celebrate Summer on the 13th of December. They have just created a Facebook event so you can easily RSVP right HERE.

I guess that’s it for today, probably enough!

Have a lovely day my friends and stay cool!

Morning my friends,

My apologies for the late update but fairly busy morning once again.

For a change, I took my daughter with me this morning. We spent 1.5 hour down the beach between Bronte and Bondi. That was such a nice morning down there and she was so well behaved that I could concentrate on the photos.

I’m right now in a Uber on my way to another meeting so I’m going to keep it short and sweet.

Have a lovely day and chat to you tomorrow,

Cheers,

Amaury

Morning my friends,

How good was this weekend! It was the perfect first weekend of Summer. Hope you had a good one too!

This morning was not bad neither. The sunrise was a cracker, the temperatures outside and inside the water perfect and I was with all my good mates! The main reason why I love my routine so much is that I get to spend quality (and sweaty) time with my good friends!

We went to the jungle gym for some reps of push/pull/abs/run, swim in North Bondi for a change and coffee at Chapter One, as we pretty much do everyday!

On another note, for the ones that don’t follow Morning Bondi on Instagram yet (you definitely should!), as of last Friday, the incredible Commune Bondi store on Glenayr Avenue is now stocking some Morning Bondi prints. Thank you so much to Loren & Kristie for this amazing opportunity! Stoked!

Have a lovely week, it’s meant to be a cracking one!

Morning peeps,

Sun is back, so am I! So good to see a bit of sun - loved it!

This morning I joined my friends, Julie, Magnus & Julius to watch the sunrise at 5:30am. It was a bit behind schedule but well worth it!

Then jungle gym sesh with Magnus, coffee with the rest of crew and swim with Simon. Such a nice way to start your day!

As some of you know, blinq art gallery in Bondi Junction is selling some of my photos. To celebrate the beginning of summer, they are throwing a cocktail party on the 13th of December from 6-9pm. Morning Bondi (ie. me, Amaury Treguer, yes they go by names & surnames of the “artists” not nicknames) will have a special corner and I would love for you join the fun! All you need to do is RSVP to: hello@morningbondi.com (before the 6th of December) and I will add you to the list. Too easy!

Have a cracking weekend my good friends!

My apologies for the late update but I was on a job by 6am. The job was actually happening right on the sand in Bondi (opposite Bondi Pavilion), how convenient!

We were filming a piece of content about sun safety for one of our clients. I will share it with you early next week once it’s live on their social channels.

To maximise my time down the beach, before the start of the shoot, I woke up at 5am. Lucky the sunrise was a cracker! Thank god, because it was pretty grey for 2 hours after that and the sun decided to show its face again when we were wrapping up… Typical!

Enjoy the photos and chat to you tomorrow,

Bright & Late

Morning my friends,

How was your weekend?

This morning started pretty dark at 5:30am with all the clouds (usually that’s when the sun is up) but by 6:30am it was super bright!

We went down the bars in North Bondi for a gym session with Bertie, then joined my mates David and Julius for coffee and finished off by a swim. By far the best way to start your week on a high!

Do you know another great way to start your week on a high? I do! I’ve teamed with the guys from Nicolas Alexander Swimwear, Pacifico Optical, Franck Provost… for the ultimate Summer Essential Gift Pack. You can win one of my ‘First in, first ripples’ print and heaps more ($1,000 worth of gifts) by entering your details right HERE. Too easy!

Have a great week and share it around,

xoxo

Unexpected

Morning my friends,

I was certainly not expecting the wind and the chill this morning. As always I was in t-shirt and board short, trust me I regretted it the moment I stepped outside.

No exercise this morning, as once again, I had to leave the beach early so only concentrated on photos and coffee.

I’m currently in a Uber writing this “incredible” update…

Have a lovely weekend,

Cheerio!
