Bench series #31

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)

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:

The last unusual benches are from Joan (a newcomer so please make her welcome) with a Gothic bench and Tgeriatrix who ends with something similar to what I started the month with and one in Barcelona.
Sonya shows how skate-boards can be recycled / upcycled. Allotmental joins in with more hands. What is it about hands and benches? Swagata’s benches are not that unusual, but what they are facing certainly is. Debbie has gone reptilian on me and Sylvia takes us back to Costa Rica. Meanwhile Ruth shows us two very different benches, one so unusual I have never seen anything like it and finally Sherri manages to join in with the fun after being computer-less for far too long with a stone sofa – yes you read that correctly – find it at the end of her very funny tale of motherhood.

As always there are so many delightful benches to view, I hope you will check out the rest of the links within the comment section. And I thank everyone for sharing their unusual benches with me during July.
