I Scream, U Scream, We All Scream For Ice Cream

My "camera eye" is always attracted to unusual sights, be they monochromes or strong colours. This shot, taken at the Royal Melbourne Show, is a combination of both factors. First, the sweep of the pathway gave me an unusual arc of several colours as the flags fluttered in the strong breeze. Second, if you look carefully, you'll see that the image has not been flipped laterally - the words on the flags are "back-to-front" because I was on the wrong side as they flapped strongly and loudly. The blue of the ice cream cart was a perfect splash of stationary colour, too. Just the perfect place to flag down flag down an ice cream vendor, don't you think?
