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.
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.
