On Anzac Day there was a soft Autumn light over Leichhardt Park Aquatic Centre.
The late afternoon sun glistened and sparkled in the blue water of the 50-metre pool.
When I started taking photos, a lifeguard asked me what was so interesting in the pool.
“There’s all these beautiful reflections,” I said.
Oh,” he said, sounding unconvinced of the beauty I was finding in the 1960-era pool.
I left him staring at the water and made my way to the deep end where I discovered …
The lane numbers and starting blocks making patterns in the pool.
The faded colours of the high platform creating watercolours in the diving pool.
And reflecting in the 50-metre pool.
