Artist's Description

As Lord Nelson might have said: ``Before you `Kiss me, Hardy’ could you please decipher this coded message in a flag display.’’

Actually, they’re not real flags, nor even naval bunting. This is simply a mural on a wall at Sydney’s Darling Harbour. It is in the vicinity – but not part of – the nearby Australian Maritime Museum.

As soon as I noticed the old-style naval ensigns, I was reminded of the old semaphore system. The pennants can still be seen in some encyclopedias – if you’re lucky!

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F6.7, 1/125 sec, ISO 400, focal length 58mm.
