Public Seating

Färdigsuttet
Photographing benches is often fun. You have to think a bit and find the best angle to shoot from and figure out the best settings. I'm guessing that designing them is even more fun. I used the word Färdigsuttet as a title for this photo at flickr. It means that no one will sit here no more. These benches are history. They can still be found at the now closed bus terminus that I showed you two days ago, but not for much longer. For the next decade (!), this area will now be a busy building site.

En bra bild på en mycket intressant och snyggt designad bänk! De borde skruvas loss och återanvändas någonstans. Det tycker i alla fall jag. :-)

Unique composition.
Well seen & well done!

Great perspective, and nice in black and white! That's quite a big project if it's going to take 10 years.
