Great PaulVDV 2018-05-17 9:25

Hello Gert,
While your main picture shows spring with some extra strong colour contrasts, the photos in the WS evoke a real summer feeling. It seems to be a hot month of May in Stockholm.
Indeed the waste bin doesn't look very pretty. That is almost always the case. Why do municipalities not look for more artistic forms of dustbins? As walls are made available for graffiti, perhaps the most beautiful work of art on a graffiti wall could become the design for all city waste bins. A competition may be made.
Stockholm once had very special and beautiful public telephone booths. (Perhaps they sill exist) So why not an attractive design for the trash bins ...
Best regards, Paul

Default To PaulVDV: telephone

Thank you Paul,
It sounds like a good idea to run a competition for the nicest trash bin. Some are already spontaneously covered with graffiti. As for the beautiful telephone booths only two remain, one outside the Royal Palace, another close to where I live - but without any telephones. They are only preserved as monuments.
Regards,
Gert

Hi Gert,

I think I saw a third one in the center. One with a telephone.
I'm afraid I cannot tell exactly where I saw it but it wasn't too far from the royal palace but I wouldn't say right out of the palace.

I saw also one traditional telephone booth on Sandhamn Island.

Enjoy your evening!
Paul

But that was some years ago. I think the real phone booths are gone now. Only the fake remain.
