1901 – Wooden Horse

Looks uninviting and overly minimalistic as a children’s playground? Well, it is mandatory in Austria to dedicate a certain percentage of the total area of newly developed housing estates as playground, and obviously this is taken pretty lightly by the investors.

Try to imagine you’re a child again. Think back. How would you feel on a lonely horse, right in the middle between a fence, a power pole and the garbage containers? Mind you: this was take with a wide-angle.

The Song of the Day is “Wooden Horse” from Suzanne Vega’s 1987 album “Solitude Standing”. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. Wow, was that the only toy in the playground? Kind of pathetic, if that is the law.

    Of course here in the US we have no such law at all, the almighty dollar being king. Occasionally some environmental regulation might stand in the way of a developer, but those are always under assault.

    Wishing you a Happy New Year, Andreas!
