The Monday Muse Week 4

The latest weekly amusement from RPS London – Waiting Spaces.

This week’s muse is Waiting Spaces and is loosely based on a wonderful little book called Architectures of Waiting - Ursula Schulz-Dornburg‘s glorious collection of bus stops and train stations. 

In London, we are surrounded by waiting spaces – from stunning reception areas in the Square Mile to grotty bus-stops; and don’t forget all the stations from the sublime to suburbia; then there are places to queue, places to sit whilst waiting for the next meeting, the next shift, a blind date ... the possibilities are endless. 

This week we’re offering bonus points for anyone who contributes a typology of 9 waiting spaces.

You can see more of Ursula’s work at Tate Modern.


Monday Muse Info

As the inspirational ideas we posted as part of the Bleeding London project proved to be so popular, we’re going to continue the theme with The Monday Muse.  Every Monday, we’ll be posting an inspirational idea for the week, with links to tips and suggestions on how to achieve the best images.  We’ll be featuring our favourites here on the blog and in our monthly eZine Capital Interest.  And just to add a bit of competition, we’ll be running a points league.  There is one point for posting an image and there will be occasional bonus points.  At the end of the year, whoever has the most points will receive a gift voucher to spend in the RPS shop.
