Waiting ....for magic to happen

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Lee Joyce

A random shot taken while walking the street of Vienna. My eye was caught by the large chunky retro weighing machine next to a bus-stop, a familiar sight in my childhood days ( in Singapore. An odd location next to a bus-stop, where people wait to be taken to their destinations..and somehow this moment, I felt myself transported to my childhood and memories of me as a child asking my late father for a coin to put into the machine as I eagerly jump up on the scale, as if it was some magical machine.

Location: Vienna, Austria
