  • Good.

    Pardon says:
  • I don’t think a public garden is a good place for the mountage… Equipment in public places is supposed to be and-vandal… And even a kid can destroy this!

    …and he forgot some shadows in the 7th picture

    I think it’s a nice loving piece foi individual use.

    Sr_Chipicao says:
  • …He did not forgot the shadows… in the 7th picture.
    There are 10… and 10 shadows also…

    It’s NICE!!!

    Giedre says:
  • I like it,
    Posts in blogs are supposed to be spelled right (autocorrect!!) : )
    This is obviously for private use, and more about story-telling than hard core usability.
    Very good job!

    Klaus says:
  • what a wonderful idea. i love it!

    jangze says:
  • To Sr_Chipicao, I guess he just don’t have an own garden.
    How would you photgraph your design?

    Mike says:
