Bench series #24

For the month of June I’m looking for a bench with ‘Art Effects’ 

A multiple glimpse of the back of a bench in Kew Gardens, London

(This month I want to see photos with some post-processing – use your imagination, it can be subtle or bold as long as it includes a bench or even part of a bench!)

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: June
  • 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 July.

And for those of you who are interested, here is the original:

Picks of the Week:.

A couple from Gilly, the Lucid Gypsy, but my favourite is this one.
Lumar1298 is very creative with her benches.
Sue joins in with some arty treatments of a gorgeous griffin bench
A lovely soft sepia effect from Sylvia back in South Africa
A bench in the ‘rain’ by Daily Musings
and final one from tgeriatrix with several interesting effects. I wonder which one you prefer?

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.
