Bench series #29

For the month of July I’m looking for a bench with ‘Unusual Details’ 

(This month I want to see photos of a bench which is different to the norm. It may be the shape, style, length, height, colour, material or even location that attracts your attention)

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: July
  • 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 August.

My Picks of the Week:

Some natural offerings this week from Aletta and Elaine and Sylvia
Debbie has found a ‘flower pot’ and both Tgeriatrix and Restlessjo have discovered benches covered in tiles, but for an elegant bench then take a look at Violetsky’s and a most intriguing one from Isobel

So many unusual benches! I thank you all 🙂

I live in the UK, but when I was younger I spent several years travelling the world followed by a period living in South Africa. I look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I have never seen a flower-pot bench before, shame it was all ‘tagged’ over.
    I have to go with the owl bench, lovely carvings.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. Thanks PP. I didn’t miss last weeks, it was a cracker, but I was pushed for time so only linked the first five or so I came across. I usually only link to five otherwise it takes so long! Hopefully people do visit other bench links from within the comments. I shall be over soon 🙂

  2. You do find the most unusual items during your travels Jude, I’ve never seen a bench quite like this one. I have one in mind for you, will post next week 🙂
