Aqua Seats

Uploaded: October 06, 2005


Banks located near Melbourne Aquarium Centre.
(all reflected lights but blue above are of hourly gas fire torch display activities from the other side)

This dark side of the river is one of my favorite spots where I take a seat and watch the flares now and then.
