bench wisdom

Postby riccadonna » Sun Oct 25, 2015 12:19 am

When walking in Prague on Vaclavske Namesti I noticed that on many new benches there were imbedded quotes and sayings of famous people. I got an idea to to pair them as a kind of comment with people sitting on them which was not that easy. Here are some of them. Stanislaw

Nice idea for a project, and indeed not easy. The last one both supports and contradicts the saying, which is interesting.

I guess you also have to be careful that they don't notice you, while still getting most of the words in the shot.. you have patience...

A great set of captures of individuals on benches that all have some incredible quotes.

Nicely done.

quester and Iansky. The quotes are incredible because their authors were. Yes it took me some time hovering around, going to and fro trying to eye a situation. Of course I could set it up but that would be contrary to my way of working. Was I stay in Prague longer surely I would anyway give this square a daily check up. I hope others will.
