Public scale



You can check your weight on the street on one of the public scales scattered in town. Public but not free: you will need a 50 cents coin. I don't think I'll ever use it...

It must be a good reminder to keep walking faster and longer.

As for your work, shadow is expressed well and is beautiful.

If it were free, I'd hop on the scale. Not for money - we have a scale in our bathroom at home.

I remember a time when these kinds of scales where at the chemist's ... who nowadays would like to pay to check his weight ;) ?

Ih ih,forse saro' una delle poche, ma quando le trovo mi ci peso sempre! Poi prendo paura, ma mi dispiacerebbe se le togliessero.
Ciao Cristy

There used to be one in the piazza in Schio..and when I was a young girl, my grandma would always bring me there upon my arrival to Italy. Then she'd weigh me once again before I left to go back to Canada. It used to be her goal to fatten me up and send me back 'healthy'to my parents -lol! Boy..times sure have changed!
