Camera on a Bench Beckons Strangers to Take Photos

Here are the photos that were taken: Link - via growabrain

ok- not that it's the most important thing going, but I starred this on my feed reader while I was on the road so that I could look at it when I got back to my desk- so why can I not open the page? It's not just a bad connection...

I see this as exemplifying what is 'right' about our society. That one person can start something that is carried out by strangers with the same spirit of involvement is great. Whether you think the photographs are good or not is secondary to the fact that they were willing to get involved.

I'm a little surprised that that there were so few interesting shots. Most were just poorly composed snapshots of strangers.

Great idea, though.
