Some benches have been put there on purpose and are meant to be in a permanent spot, like the first one at the coast in Duinbergen. Others are left there accidentally because its owner did not feel like going through the trouble of taking it to the dump. A clever street artist got his/her hand on it and turned it into something that grabs the attention.
What do you think, I wonder, pro or against this type of street "art"?

I am for this kind of spontaneous art. As long as it is done with "taste" and not look like a garbage dump with the corresponding look and smell.ReplyDelete
Thank you for showing it.
It certainly looks better like this than simply dumped in the original state by the way side! DianeReplyDelete
I love these pictures, they're soo cool!ReplyDelete
The bench is very nice! And it's a good thing an artist dolled up the couch a bit. But maybe the couch shouldn't have been there in the first place, no?ReplyDelete
Things are different everywhere aren't they? I love these and would rather wait to the bus on one of these than the hard iron ones we have here! Fun captures for the day!ReplyDelete
Bovenste vind ik oké, Anni... De onderste daarentegen...ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoy TheokunReplyDelete
S.C and Diane, I agree, better than a garbage dump and hourah for spontaneous art.
That's one way of looking at it Petrea.
Sylvia, I know what you mean but these are not really near any bus stop.
Lies, inderdaad, groot verschil tussen foto één en foto 2.
I say "yes" to the first one and "probably not" to the second. I would be a bit concerned about "bugs"ReplyDelete
First picture is very nice. I'm sure that the funny mayor of Knokke did install it as a piece of art...ReplyDelete
Pour moi toutes les formes d'art peuvent et doivent pouvoir exister.ReplyDelete
Les arts éphémères ont ceci de fantastiques que souvent ils rendent beaux ou intéressants ce qui n'était que sans intérêt !
Jeroen, you are probably right that Knokke's mayor likes it !ReplyDelete
Merci Jacques pour ce commentaire avec lequel je suis tout à fait d'accord
good to be flat one day and spotting aroundReplyDelete
