Way back in November I mentioned I was on the trail of Robert Burns. Based on the idea that Burns has more monuments to his name than any other writer, my partners in crime on the new Robert Burns Birthplace Museum (opening soon! Go visit!) commissioned me to record any Burns references I encountered on my travels.
I’ve been a bit slack, but I spotted this fine specimen on Monday morning, slap bang in the middle of downtown Ballarat.
Given the surroundings, I couldn't resist applying the 'Old West' effect in Photoshop. Burns was a man much given to dramatic spectacle, so I think he would approve.
