A kaleidoscope of colours at Annette’s pool

When I was at the new Annette Kellermann Aquatic Centre 10 days ago I captured some amazing reflections in the water.

There were so many beautiful colours, patterns and shimmery shapes it reminded me of looking through a kaleidoscope.


The vibrant greens, yellows, oranges and reds of the newly opened aquatic centre took on new shades  reflected in the water.

The pool became a dreamy world of purple, mauve, soft greens, pale pink, faded red, light yellows and blue.

Just the sort of seductive space Marrickville-born Annette Kellermann would have enjoyed diving into during her days performing across Europe and the United States as the Australian Mermaid and Diving Venus in the early 1900s.

  • Great you have become a follower Carol – welcome to swimming pool stories. Not sure what I will do with these photos but a friend wants to have a go at turning them into paintings. Will continue to look for reflections in pools and all sorts of interesting angles. Happy New Year. Therese
