Bench series #6

For the month of February let’s see your benches processed in Black and White

Picnic Benches at Kirkcudbright Road Bridge over the River Dee

Check out these Tips for B&W photography.

If you would like to join in with the Bench photo challenge then please take a look at my Bench Series page. No complicated rules, just a bench and a camera required 🙂

  • Create your own post and title it Bench Series: February
  • Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
  • Add the tag ‘bench series’ so everyone can find the benches easily in the WP Reader
  • Get your post in by the end of the month, as the new bench theme comes out on the first Sunday in March

My Picks of the Week:

The Wandering Poet – now isn’t that a great blog title? With an amazing perspective of a bench.
Some winter benches from Meg in Warsaw (and an explanation here)
Something very odd in London from Debbie
A lovely view over the Caloosahatchee River from Sylvia.
Ladysighs has more poignant poems about benches for us to enjoy.
A sweet spot to relax in from Issy this week aptly named ‘Rendezvous’

Thanks to everyone who has joined in with this challenge so far.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Great that you got a bridge in with the benches, lovely photo. I’ve discovered that Picasa comes with my new laptop so I am seriously slow with editing while I try and get the time to figure out how to use it. Darn nuisance as I keep running into this kind of thing, but mustn’t complain…and I will try and get my B&W bench photo to you in time 🙂
