Photographer's Note

One of my father's expressions is "Gioventù bruciata" and I took it to mean that blend of Youth and Restlessness where acts can often occur without much thought and often with some disdain for the norm. In addition there is a degree of surliness, daydreaming and idealism, all of which puts the young at loggerheads with their parents' generation. We all went through it in our youth to lesser or greater extent.
Only yesterday I asked my father how did the expression come into his vernacular, but he had no idea. It was an expression used in Zadar (Zara)by the speakers of Italian. I found out on the net that it is the Italian version of the title of the film Rebel Without a Cause, staring James Dean.

This young lady's behaviour reminded me of the expression. She walked alone deep in some reverie. She did however notice the small TE group with their cameras. She proceeded to strike this pose giving us ample time to take a shot or two. No words were exchanged but she seemed pleased that we did notice her existence.

Wikipedia:St Leonards is a coastal township near Geelong, Victoria, Australia, at the eastern end of the Bellarine Peninsula and the northern end of Swan Bay. Situated 33 kilometres (21 mi) east of Geelong, St Leonards was a filming location for the Australian television series SeaChange.

The town is surrounded by salt marsh wildlife reserves which provide habitat for hundreds of birds, including the critically endangered Orange-bellied Parrot of which there are less than 200 in the wild. Salt marshes are one of the most biologically productive habitats on the planet, rivaling tropical rainforests. The official motto for St Leonards is "Where everyday is Sunday"
