Inspired by the picture “Watcher” of Malgo (emka),I searched in my maps for “stolen scenes”. An arranged photo scene meant for an album of someone else, but too nice to ignore.
These man is trying to fight?, ride?, make love? with one of the statues of the famous Vigeland Park in Oslo.
Gustav Vigeland (11 April 1869 – 12 March 1943), was a Norwegian sculptor. Gustav Vigeland occupies a special position among Norwegian sculptors, both in the power of his creative imagination and in his productivity. He is most associated with the Vigeland installation (Vigelandsanlegget) in Frogner Park, Oslo. He was also the designer of the Nobel Peace Prize medal. (Wikipedia)
If you like the monumental sculptures of Vigeland than I can give you a recommendation for the “Rudolph Tegners Museum og Statuepark” in Dronningmølle, Denmark. (http://www.rudolphtegner.dk)

Hi Rob, How nice that you were inspired by my photo to post this one. Vigeland's Park is the good place for stolen photos as the people are taking funny poses with the sculptures, like here. Funny, what the guy is doing. Even more interesting is the stone guy on the left:)
Warm regrads Malgo

Ik kan eigenlijk alleen maar zeggen dat ik nu achteraf blij ben dat je mij destijds niet gevraagd heb op zo'n ridicule wijze over een beeld te gaan liggen. Dit heerschap lijkt er in ieder geval schik in te hebben..

Ah, ah, ah... Very amusing... Let's hope that there aren't any too conservative moralists among the moderators of tE, or else this could be removed... What an orgy! :D It's very well seen and captured.

"Stolen" photos are among my favourites. They sometimes give me funny photos for free. This is very amusing but also a good composition with very distinct features. But behaving like this would be totally prohibited in any museum.

Bonsoir, cher Rob,
La gravité est le bouclier des sots !
Il faut savoir rire ou s'amuser de certaines situations. Une image qui ne manque pas d'humour.

Very good stolen photo indeed. It shows that people can behave quite embarrassing in order to take a "funny" photo. This man probably did not think of that it was not only family / friends that could take a photo, but that there were also many other people with a cameras that could take a picture. It also demonstrates that as a middle age person you should be a little careful with what you do in public places. TFS and have a nice evening!

Looks quite cheerful, indeed!
