Sit a Spell


Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop.

As many of you know, I LOVE benches!
I do not see empty benches as lonely. I see them as
Inviting, Peaceful, Restful, Stress-less (is that a word?)
Maybe my all time favorite description for an empty bench is
Comforting!

I am a huge fan of benches and they are a frequent subject on my photoblog as well.

This is a beautiful shot. Lovely colors.

What a beauty of a picture (and bench)! You are right - peaceful is the word. BTW - in Norway there has for many years existed an easy-chair called: "Stressless"!

Great photo, Kerri. I quite like benches myself. I see a spot for an older couple to hold hands, or a child to dangle her feet.

I like benches too, and you are so right. There are so very many and they all say, " Come and sit a spell".

I really enjoyed this photo and also the bench one at your other site. I had to go and see if you had posted it on our bench site too but didn't see it and I looked thru 100 posts to try to find it. I do hope you will put it there too.

I have a bunch more benches to post -- just haven't gotten around to it since Malyssa is without a computer just now and she always drops by to leave a comment. I will resume again shortly.

When I see a bench, I see a place to sit and forget my troubles for a while. While an empty bench will sometimes look a little lonely to me, I usually see an invitation.

Beautiful shot!

I'm fond of benches too. They always seem to have a history.
