Bench series #8

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

Claremont Landscape Garden – Surrey

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:

Well there is always one who wants to break the rules (but then rules are always meant to be broken) – have a look at the gorgeous benches from Restlessjo in her tongue-in-cheek post.
Elizabeth takes us to Sydney Opera House with some lovely night shots.
Lumar1298 has some pretty benches and locations for us
Aletta has some long benches this week, but are they the longest benches?
Oddly shaped bench on Klara’s post this week
and Pauline has some odd character on one of her benches 🙂

This is the last week for Black and White images so if you have any please enter them before next Sunday as then I shall be looking for Wooden benches.

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. Wonderful series here Jude, some fantastic bench B&W’s, thanks for sharing. I’m still hoping to get mine in time 🙂

  2. Beautiful silhouette, beautifully composed.

    I’ve just been reminded of the Chopin benches in Warsaw in places connected to his life here. Press a button and get a burst of his music. They don’t seem to fit any of your categories, although I’m working on it.

    1. There is a category for unusual benches some time in the year!

      There were some benches in Montreux that had poems you could listen to by pressing a button. Well, you could if they put some new batteries in!
