MEREWETHER CALM - Acrylic Desk Block

Merewether Ocean Baths, Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia

I captured this photograph after waiting in the car at the nearby car park being rained on as a storm front passed over. Finally, around the time of sunset, the rain finished and a sense of quiet calm descended in the post storm atmosphere. Seizing the gap before the next rain shower, I headed out and captured this image. Minutes later, the rain returned as darkness fell over the baths and the calm I captured here proved only momentary.

The Merewether Ocean Baths were built during the depression and completed in 1935 by unemployed labourers through a depression-relief scheme. The baths consist of two large rectangular pools with an overall dimension of 100 metres x 90 metres. They are the largest ocean baths in the state of New South Wales. Located just three kilometres from the Newcastle city centre, the Baths have a long history as a popular swimming spot in Newcastle.

ACRYLIC DESK BLOCKS.

Our acrylic desk blocks give the photo a three dimensional look. They are perfect for desks, bookshelves, mantlepieces, bed side tables - any horizontal surface.

The photo is printed on professional grade metallic photographic paper, using archival inks. It is then mounted on the back of an acrylic (plexiglass) block. It is finished with diamond polishing, buffing and final hand polish.

They are free standing, so no hanging system is required. These are a very popular option for gifts, farewell presents or if you need a small lightweight option to travel with. Acrylic desk blocks come in a box ready to gift.
