    River Torrens @ Night

    by Plays with Light » Sun Oct 19, 2014 1:22 pm

    Was in the city last Friday night, for a drumming & fire spinning group that meets once a month and thought I'd take the opportunity to grab some images of the River Torrens area at night, now that the building rubble is all well and truly cleared away from the area. Great idea, but some idiot had left the wrong base plate attached to their camera and had to go handheld for the session, instead of being able to use the tripod... :oops: :roll:

    I love the form of this new footbridge, but find it horrendously lit at night, making it look like something from Macau, that would shuttle punters from a brothel to a casino.

    Looking at the King William Street bridge and the stadium behind.

    The first one reminds me of 70's album covers, and that's a good thing.

    There is a slight nod of the head to an album cover that jean Michael Jarre or Mike Oldfield may have used, now that you mention it. :)

    The colour in the first two is great and the bridge shot is my fav and she is a nice little bridge at that!
    I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center.

    Never had any interest in gambling so can the traffic flow be reversed to get me back to the shaggery?

    I definitely prefer the old bridge, she's got a quaint charm, that's for sure.

    You're a wise man, Walter! I've only been inside our casino twice, both times to have a sticky at the interior and whether they kept the beauty of the buildings interior intact. Apart from buying a coffee both times, they have never had any of my money.
