Street with old-style guard rail, Madeira, February 1995 At a street near the village of Faial on Madeira, I saw that old-style guard rail. Street with new guard rail, Madeira, November 1997 Two and a half years later, the guard rail had been replaced by a new one. Street with guard rail (flaked-off paint), Madeira, November 2002 Again five years later, the new guard rail's paint had already flaked off. I strongly assume the old-style guard rail was longer-lasting.

Graffiti "Reclining Buddha", Berlin, Germany, 2003 At the sub­urban train stop "Tier­garten" in Berlin, I found this graffiti during Easter 2003. I called it "Re­clining Buddha" because it reminded me of the re­clining Buddha statues in Asia. Graffiti "Reclining Buddha", Berlin, Germany, 2004 During Whit­sun 2004, I visited the place again. I found that additional graffiti had been applied, but the original Buddha image was still in­tact. Graffiti "Reclining Buddha", Berlin, Germany, 2011 In July 2011, more graffiti had superseded the picture, but the Buddha's head — although faded — was still partly visible.
