During one of my river walks was carrying my Zeis 35mm rangefinder camera with me. Halfway across the Greenfield Street Bridge, I stopped to look at the river. From this elevated position, I could see on the surface of the water a white, bubbly, swirling layer. You could see the source of the bubbles eminating from the oxygenation pipes placed in the river.

The conditions were calm and the river flow rate is slow. The oxygenation process creates bubbles which form a thin white foam on the surface of the water, creating fascinating patterns.

Each image is from three sequential 35mm frames, made down stream from the oxygenation tank at Greenfield Street. First published in “Lost in Suburbia” in 2013. This is the only image in my Canning River exhibition “Dissociation” which was made from 35mm format.
