Colour on a grey day ♦

Imagine the scene: It was an unseasonally cool, drizzly and grey
August morning as I reluctantly made my way to work, for a meeting I’d
rather not have had. I turned the corner, into Birmingham’s Victoria
Square, and a strange vehicle stood before me. As I approached,
wondering what it was, some unseen engineer flicked a switch and it
burst into life, an electronic test-card equivalent of a Dutch tulip
field. Out of all proportion to its technically-derived,
creativity-deprived design, it lifted my spirits immensely; as well as
any masterpiece could have done. It fitted the moment perfectly. My
picture is exactly what I and my phone-camera saw. No adjustment was
made to composition or colour; only my disposition..
