I'm on one of these walls :)
The geologist in me tells me these stones are made out of a lovely flow granite, and I like them for now. They will change in the future and that's a good thing as well.
The Monorail runs right over my (and Mrs Joe90s) picture so I suppose I get run over by a monorail every 5 mins or so :)
If I had been given a choice I would have gone for a paving stone like they have in MK.
I wonder why they stopped that? Guests paying to replace the paving = free paving. Win Win in my book.

I have noticed that some of the older pictures are wearing down over the years. Some are barely noticeable. I think exposure is getting to them. They should be moved, perhaps to the sides where they will be a little more protected.
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

I don't like them either. I would take the brick pavers over these obstacles any day.

I have to agree with horizons. I actually do look at the ground when walking in the MK to see some of the bricks and the dates on the bricks. As for the the obelisks, I never look at them since half of the pictures just don't even look like humans!

Can't you do that with your own pictures?
yes, you could. but with those Leave a Legacy pictures, you're basically leaving "a piece of yourself" in "the World". you can't say that with your own pictures.
