Bench series #2

It would appear from the comments left on last week’s bench 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…

Please click on the Bench Photo Challenge  for some simple guidelines and the proposed monthly themes

For the month of January let’s see your GARDEN benches

This is taken from a seat, but there is another one in the picture if you look very carefully.

Bench series #1

For some time now I have been photographing benches when I come across them. I like benches. I especially like them when they are placed in a convenient position, like half way up a hill, or on the top of a cliff, preferably with a view. Some benches have plaques, some have slats, some are made of wood, some are good (to sit on). So for the next year, as a new feature, I am going to post a photo of a bench/seat each week. So you can take the weight of your feet and relax and breathe…

This one comes with a lovely view of the garden.
