Bench Photo Challenge

EDIT January 2016: Please note that this challenge ran throughout 2015 so is in fact now closed.

It would appear from the comments left on my first week’s bench photo that this is a topic close to the heart of many photographers (and there I was thinking that I was unique 😕 ) and that many of you would love to join in. So let’s go for it…


I shall post a bench each Sunday within a particular theme which will change each month. You are invited to join in by posting one or more of your own benches within the month that fit into the theme and either add a link (ping-back) in your post to mine or link to it in a comment on my post.

To make it easier to find everyone’s posts, perhaps you could add the TagBench Series‘.

You don’t have to post on a Sunday, any day in the month will do and if you have loads of benches that fit into a theme then feel free to post several times during the month or create a gallery or whatever suits you best.

I’ve never run a challenge before so I hope this all makes sense. If not I am sure some of you will tell me 😉


January: In the Garden
February: Benches processed in Black and White
March: Wooden Benches

If you select Bench Challenge from the Photo Challenge Menu (on the left) you will be able to look through all my benches.

I look forward to seeing where your benches take me…
