Bench series #43

For the month of October I’m looking for a bench with someone or something sitting on it

(any kind of bench will do, but there must be at least one person, animal or object on the bench)

This week it is a ‘something’ – a peacock in the Glenwhan Garden, Dumfries and Galloway

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: October
  • 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 November.

Well it is the last week for your occupied benches, as we start something new next Sunday. I have been inundated with benches this week, many more with sculptures and even stranger objects! And I am loving the ones set up especially for the challenge 🙂

My Picks of the Week:

My first pick has to be this beautiful bench in Melbourne that would have fitted nicely into the unusual category, but luckily has a lovely young man perched on it;
Lisa (Daily Musings) makes me laugh with her take on a bench with a sculpture from the prolific Seward Johnson. Take a look at her last week’s bench too, sure to make you smile. And more from America from Dawn(1)  who captures a well-located bench(2) that many cyclists are deeply grateful for.
Meanwhile in England Sue’s couple are simply admiring the view. Gilly on the other hand has set a challenge. Anyone know where this is? And the restless one gives us a Smörgåsbord of benches. Grumpily 😀
More from the folk who live upside down: DJ finds a lazy bench for lazing on and Ruth has been scouring the streets in Tassie. Whilst Kaz has a view to die for if you are waiting for the ferry.

Thank you everyone, new and old for all for the delightful benches sent my way, and a small mention to all those noisy ones that shout out my name as you go past! Sorry about that 😉

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.
