Week #20: Reading Messages

Walking in the streets of Brussels again this week.   This is week number 20 for me.

Several times I bumped  across different kinds of messages. Some were obvious, others I had to try harder to interpret, right or wrong?  This wall and door were covered with stickers with pictures (portraits) or people, each holding a sign with a message related to (lack of) different kinds of freedom.

This word (Solidarity) was on a sign hanging on the building of a worker union.

This one is in favor of keeping a little bit of a public garden soon to be replaced by a new building.

Under the cobblestones on this square, a “time capsule” has been buried for the future generations, with another kind of message (a poem — and also a sound recording of it).

I didn’t get this message though…

My preference goes to this Darwin quote.

I was shooting with a (new to me) Pentax PC 35 AF, a nice little point & shoot camera that sometimes focuses right and exposes OK. Plus it’s really small, almost as an XA2 but with AF and builtin (opt-in) flash.  I kind of liked this.  The film was a roll of Polypan F exposed at ISO 50 and developed semi-stand in R09 1+100 for an hour.
