walking on broken glass ?

I guess that's what those poor guys are doing every day when they need to replace the windows in those trashed bus-stops. But you've got to admit that in all that waste, there's some beauty, but I would rather find it elsewhere. This one was found in Rissne.

A depressing (and all too frequent) sight but an excellent photo.

I'm a firmly believe that beauty can be seen in most things, and this was a nice pic.

But really, since there are too many pea-brains out there with apparently too much destructive impulses, isn't it long overdue now, to replace those poor glass bus-stop walls for something more sustainable...?

Pia: Or perhaps replace the pea-brains ... ?

Pia K said...

Oh yes, that would be a great solution to the problem!

It's an interesting philosophical question really. Should society be remodeled to fit those who don't want to fit in at all? As a tax payer I would certainly appreciate not having to pay for replacing these all the time. As a citizen I'm not so sure.

Oh this could be discussed endlessy I suppose, *maybe* there's no easy solution to it, but it would be interesting to see that someone actually tried to solve it, at least with babysteps -as opposed to only replacing the glass again and again and again... Talk about a Sisyphean task!

A shot of a broken glass window - and then all this...:)

Amusing conversation here. I kind of imagined that it would stir up some feelings. I think the guys who have changed the glass in one bus-stop for the x'th time would be more than happy to change the material to something else. On the other hand it's sad that a few see it fit to destroy common property, just for the fun of it. Something needs to be done to change the behaviour. Where does one start ?

This topic is both so complex and so simple - distinct, coherent hands on information, boundaries and demands to be set
- on the other hand, one can't help but thinking just *slightly* about how handy a hammer would come when commom sense doesn't seem to work...
