I saw this childrens carousel/roundabout, in a deserted play section in Sloughbottom park. I do not frequent children play areas! this was a wet afternoon when there was no-one in the park. I liked it, so I photographed it, without any thought what to do with the image. The corner of a street, (Colman Rd./Muriel Rd.) which was being prepared to be renovated, had the markings made by engineers, to denote underground pipes and cables. I liked the cracked pavement, double yellow lines, manhole covers etc, so I started with this image. I tried various objects to include in a collage, but as soon as put the roundabout on,…it clicked! I have introduced some fictional coloured markings of own, and I am very pleased with the result.
