Any idea what this photograph (above) depicts? A thick strip of licorice? Stripes on a wall? Some crazy rendering of an old-time television test pattern? No idea? Give up? Okay, have a look at the photograph below and you'll see immediately what I've shot. It's simply a broad set of outdoor stairs at the Flemington Showgrounds. So why did I photograph the sight? Because of the unusuals colours, I guess. But then again, who needs an excuse to take a photograph?
