Bench series #32

For the month of August I’m looking for a colourful bench

(This month I want to see photos of a bench that is painted or stained or otherwise coloured in some way. Not the plain wooden variety unless there is some colour detail)

in the round
I loved the shape and colourful frame of these otherwise ordinary wooden benches in Alert Bay, Canada

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: August
  • 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 September.

My Picks of the Week:

Gilly was first in with a gorgeous Gaudi bench in Barcelona. Followed quickly by another mosaic offering from Tgeriatrix and a lovely Asian carved bench from Debbie, who must be the most well-travelled person on here.
Violetsky has a very colourful arty bench and keeping with the arty theme just look at the mosaics from Pauline with a link to a fascinating sculpture garden in NZ.
Moving from arty to hearts ❤ ❤ ❤ we have Polianthus
Colourful but not comfortable from Klara whilst
Lori adds a poem to hers and finally Aletta is in the pink!

As always there are so many delightful benches to view, I hope you will check out the other links within the comment section.

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. Books are hard Sue, blogging is MUCH easier! I have done one book – about Canada in fact – which took me about a year to do. Editing photos takes a lot of time as they have to be good enough to be printed. I have several ideas, but think I’ll stick to blogging 🙂

    1. There are a lot of blue benches around Sydney I noticed, but I don’t seem to have any other colours from that trip. Maybe you will be lucky 🙂
