Josef repurposes a retired parking meter into an ad hoc piece of public art. While I am on the subject, I have been asked by a great many folks about this fellow. As it would happen, Nowy Dziennik published an article about him last year. Give it a look-see! (NOTE: Google translations from Polish to English are a mite bit “off”— but you’ll get the idea…)
