a river of golden reflections...
Aerial view of Clarke Quay in 1983. One of those early evenings with the perfect soft light just prior to sunset. I used the same conditions to photograph refections off the river, with remarkable results. I will provide examples of this. After the clean up in 1987 and removal of the river boats the river ceased to provide this mirroring effect on light and colour bounced off nearby buildings and barges.
I'm proud that i found a way to literally highlight the beauty of the river made possible due to its polluted state, allowing the photographer to take advantage of the psychedelic mirroring effect.
