Artist's Description

Put your thinking caps on …. what have I shot here?

It might look like the world’s biggest bar code, but it ain’t! Let’s have some theories from all you sleuths out there ….

If you don’t want to read the answer, don’t look any further.

Solved after 24 hours by Sazfab who said it was a slippery slide. She’s on a roll now, having solved two of my “Saturday pictorial puzzles” in four weeks!

Yes, it’s the bottom of a giant slide called the Euroslide, and the shot was taken at the Moomba fairground in Melbourne’s Alexandra Gardens in 2007. The real clue was the colours reflected in the image – and you can see one of my other Red Bubble shots of the slide at Slippery Slide

This shot was actually taken the day after Moomba had closed and a team of workmen were dismantling everything in the Alexandra Gardens.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F11, 1/500 sec, ISO 200, focal length 125mm.

Featured in CONTRASTING PERCEPTIONS, November 2009.
