Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

It might look like some intricate piece of machinery, but this stands outside the Pancake Parlour entrance at the Jam Factory in the inner Melbourne suburb of Prahran.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F5.6, 1/30 sec, ISO 800, focal length 125mm.

  • Thank you, Gail – I would love to know if it is a replica of a piece of machinery that was originally used at the factory. Thanks so much for the fave.

    Such vivid colours. Well composed. Goes to prove that you don’t need to see the entire subject. Less IS more.

  • Many thanks for your insight, Ranald. I shot two frames here yesterday – neither of them showed the whole object! So glad you like the composition ….

    So colorful! Great display piece so well captured.

  • I just found out that it is either a refurbished piece of original equipment from the factory, or a replica. Those two wheels were amazing!

    Excellent capture ;-)

  • Thanks very much, Steve – the two wheels seemed to be able to move independently of each other.
