Bench series #49

For the month of December you can choose any bench you like

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: December
  • 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.

Another take on the creative month challenge, this bench was seen in South Beach Miami. The original for those who like to see these things:

My Picks of the Week:

Not many participants this week, I guess too busy celebrating Thanksgiving and/or Christmas shopping! But Kaz found a cool bench in Melbourne.

This is the final month of the challenge. So dig out those bench photos that missed out on previous months. And next year I have a different challenge for you over on my flower blog. If you are interested then pop over and have a look. I hope many of you will join me there next year.

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. Yes I really should have moved to get this bench from a different direction and not have all that clutter in the background. I have learned a lot over the past few years!

        1. I like the original image, but not the background ‘stuff’ which is why I transformed it. But whichever way you like it that’s fine by me 😉

  1. Morning Jude! I am waiting for the household to arise. It looks a bit murky out there so I don’t think we’ll be sitting on benches today. Well, maybe in a shopping centre…. xx

    1. Hi Jo. I hope you will have some more benches to share this month otherwise they will sit in your folders, unloved and unseen 😉

      Have a good day with Lisa. Sunshine and showers here, and I heard the birds singing this morning as though it were spring! If only…

  2. It looks so pristine Jude ! I can imagine far from Miami home here it would’ve had a spray of graffiti or tag on it …
    Roll on Summer is all I can think of looking at the Bahama blue brightness 🙂

    1. Haha… you may find benches popping up all over the place next year. I have to force myself to walk past a bench and NOT take a photo. I was hoping this year would have cured me of the obsession.

      1. No, never been Jude. I have a good friend who lives there, she was my neighbour once upon a time in Paso Robles, and I so much want to visit. One of these days, along with myriad other hopeful plans…
