I love it. Photo booths capture the most interesting expressions. To put them up is great idea.

Nice post!

Interesting. The parking meter offers a bit of whimsey.

I like that! the portrait of a street, or of a city, through a wall of pictures. Citizens are the ingredients of the mood of a place.

I like this kind of art :)

My guess is that they had to install behind the already existing parking meter, yes.

It is an interesting wall of images. Were they all taken in your town or scattered across your area? I am afraid that here in Sydney, that wall of faces would simply attract moustaches and glasses and eventually meaningless graffiti.

Sad isn't it?

I love the way that people can be art, as well as make it.

I would gladly put money in the meters if I had this background all the time!!

Is your portrait included, bc? The meter looks like part of the installation.

Wonderful finds here! Also, I made an interesting discovery. Here’s an excerpt from an article I wrote about it this month…
DÉCOR TIPS & QUIPS from AlphabetPIX.com
Bring Out The YOU In Your Home Decor!
Bill Blass said, “Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” Decorating takes on a new meaning for each individual. Different tastes in decor mean different furniture, artwork and color palettes. So what is the rule of thumb for making your place zing if it’s not a certain style, pattern, or color?
Bring out the Y-O-U!
Make a statement and let your personality shine through! Add your zing to make it pop. Hang something personal on the wall with a few well-chosen accents-bold and beautiful. The trend for decor is becoming more and more personalized.
Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own individual style. Put it out there for the world to see and don’t look back. Express yourself! When people enter your home they’ll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.
