Story behind the photograph
The figure of a NSW lifesaver is and should be well known to everybody. The familiar caps and yellow shirts are a symbol of safety and enjoyment for so many beach goers. This particular photograph was taken at Avoca Beach where the surf can be challenging at the best and outright dangerous very often. The watchful eye of this female lifesaver was directed towards a group of young surfers.
For these unfamiliar with the Australian Lifesavers it is essential to mention they are volunteers.
