Photographer's Note

I took this yesterday, early evening, only 500 metres from my flat. This beach is renowned for its colourful old bathing boxes, about 40 of them. They are very small but also expensive real estate, and when the leases do come up for sale, which is rarely, the cost is around $100,000 Aus (about $75,000 US). I wonder if the owners know the area is rat infested? Needless to say, the wealthy types who own them hardly ever use them. C'est la vie.

At the end of a gleaming autumn day, with not a breath of wind around, there were quite a few people on the beach, including another photographer, and the pensive looking woman (or is she expressing exhaustion in her pose? - she looks 'far away', anyway) with her child. These boxes make good photos at any time, but I particularly went down there yesterday to see how they looked in the late afternoon light. I quite like the result, for the mood as well as the colours.

I didn't have to do much to this one except crop, resize and sharpen a little.
