The Baths, Before Swimming Season VII

Parnell Baths, Auckland NZ. (August 2020)

The final post in a series of photographs of Auckland’s iconic outdoor salt water pools.

Opening day for the summer season is a few weeks away but these shots capture the pools whilst closed.

Admittedly, there is something a little sad about the empty pools and surrounds but it’s an opportunity to concentrate on their shape, structure and colour (great shades of blue – my favourite colour!). And of features that are normally submerged by water.

I really enjoyed taking the time to fossick around the pools without the throngs of keen swimmers who will surely arrive when the pools are filled and the weather warms up.

And in that sense, the shots are not so much about the down time but the anticipation of what is to come. Bring on summer!

As always, thanks for dipping in!
