Every time I see an arrangements of chairs, benches or other apparatus used for sitting, I take note with my camera. Here are some other examples: Park Bench Series No. 1, Park Bench Series No. 2, Park Bench Series No. 3, Bench Series No. 4, Bench Series No. 5, Bench Series No. 6, Bench Series No. 7, Bench […]
Back at the car wash today. The waiting room had a very cushy bench that I couldn’t pass up. See these posts for the other benches in the series: Bench Series No. 1; Bench Series No. 2, Bench Series No. 3, Bench Series No. 4, Bench Series No. 5, Bench Series No. 6, Bench Series No. 7, Bench Series No. 8, Bench Series […]
It was just a walk in the park. This interesting bench only has vertical slats. I like the zig-zaggy shadows.
Here is a bench at a bus stop. The unique feature of this bench is the slat into which the transit company logo is carved.
