Artist's Description

“Which one of you clowns is responsible for this mess? Okay, I’ll let you off just this time, just because you look fairly ’armless”. One sale and 3,302 views on 9 July 2014.

The interesting aspect of this shot is the number of geometrical shapes – there are triangles, ovals, squares, rectangles and circles.

(These clowns are an integral part of every Australian fairground – the aim is to drop a series of table tennis balls into their open mouths as the figures rotate, with prizes determined by the result.)

I do not crop or post-edit my work. What you see is exactly what I shoot. Shot at the Royal Melbourne Show in 2007, using a Pentax K100D fitted with a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F6.7, 1/60 sec, ISO 400, focal length 58mm.
