Australia 2 : Its People (Environmental Portraits only)

Challenge #22 in the around the world in 80 ways series. Hosted by santamonica812.
Challenge has finished
Show us these native Aussies, interacting with their environment. Surfers on the waves. Cowboys on the range. Window-washers outside a tall building. Use your creativity to show us a slice of life in Oz. Please, enter images that you've not already used in prior challenges . . . let's see something fresh and new from you. (I will likely depend on help from other challenge participants in tracking down violators. So, images that are repeats could be DQ'd at any time . .. even after the challenge ends!) See my earlier challenges, or send me a PM, if you have any questions about what an "environmental" portrait is. In addition, this particular challenge is for subjects that are *not* staring into the camera and/or not posing for the camera. Entrants are required to (1) vote for each other entry, (2) read the comments (if any) below this challenge, in case I or other entrants post with Rules questions or clarifications, and (3) follow each of the challenge rules.
