Bench series #39

For the month of September I’m looking for a Metal bench

Quatrefoil bench in Autumn

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: September
  • 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 October.

This is the last week for your metal benches, next Sunday we start looking for ones with someone or something on it.

My Picks of the Week:

Kaz, another lady who lives in Sydney, took a photo of this bench some time ago, but it is metal and it is a beautiful shot so I am including it in my pick this week. Tish invites you to join her in a circular argument. Debbie is feeling chilly in Margate. Klara is back with a contemporary bench and Lori has another sculptural bench whilst Violetsky brings us something a little more normal from Scotland this time and Elaine heads back to New Orleans.

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

This post is my 500th on this blog which is really weird because I have reached the 500th post on my flower blog too. I obviously take too many photographs! I would like to thank all my followers and readers for their likes and comments and all the wonderful conversations that occur on here. Who knew that blogging could be so much fun. Thank you all 🙂

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. Wow Jude 500 posts on two separate blogs is amazing! Congratulations ot you and my sincere thanks for your photography tips along the way. You really have shown me a lot about looking at the image from different perspectives and angles. You are often traveling with us. 🙂

    1. No wonder I am always so tired!

      Thank you for following me and all your wonderful, often humorous and always thoughtful comments 🙂

  2. Love the color of those flowers in the photo; it adds a sweet antique quality to the whole photo.

    1. Those are lovely sedums, they do look great at this time of year with their wine-red heads. Thanks for commenting Alex and the follow 🙂

  3. This a great shot, I love the colours and the shape of the bench (though I’d never have known it was “quatrefoil”!). Thanks for mentioning my train station bench. 🙂
    I just got back from a week up in the “Top End”. In addition to some stunning scenery, I saw a few interesting benches — alas, mostly metal and/or wood, so they’ll have wait for December’s “whatever” category. Though luckily there is one with a person sitting on it, so I can join in October, too. 😉

    1. I have visions of all these people all around the world scouring the streets for benches in order to join me 😀
      BTW quatrefoil is only my name for it based on the patterns (an ornamental design of four lobes or leaves as used in architectural tracery, resembling a flower or clover leaf.)
