Title: The Boys in the Fishway
Category: Cultural Heritage
Description: I am taking a series of photographs of the Barwon at and around the Brewarrina Weir, following the recent rains in NSW and Queensland. We are expecting the river to continue to rise over the coming weeks, as the rivers upstream are filling and pouring in. Also, the rivers that join the Barwon/Darling downstream of Bre are intersecting; imagine a huge crash as they all meet and cause a slowing of the flow (a traffic jam, if you like) between that point and Brewarrina. Consequently, as the upstream water continues to flow to us, our part of the river rises.. Wonderful to watch. I took this photograph and then I noticed the ‘tiny’ figures of two lads in the water. I thought it completely changed the feel of the picture.
