Now I'm wondering if this is your own collage work, Les, or if you took a photo of someone else's collage? It's especially nice with the orange and blue colors. Just pops!
Les Auld: All my own work Ginnie, twenty minutes in Photoshop and I ended up with this. I've been wanting to do this one for a while but have been waiting for a hook to hang it on, the Turner prize came along and the rst is history, or so they say.
Love the image, composition and colours Les. Can't quite work out whether that's a porthole or a mirror, but the blurred images look slightly nautical.
Les Auld: Thanks Ian, the reflection is te sail on the barque Zebu moored opposite the Tate in the ALbert Dock.
There is nothing like the Turner prize to raise blood pressure across the nation. I Like the picture.
Les Auld: I do agree Bill, thanks for the comment.

Took me a few moments to realise that it is a collage. Excellent composition and use of contrasting colours. Worth everyone of the 20 minutes you invested.
Les Auld: Thanks Louis, appreciate the comment.
Very interresting ! I love the picture too !
Les Auld: Thanks Zeb, next is to try and get some photos from inside the gallery.
