Benches





Sometimes we have them all to ourselves
 Albuquerque, New Mexico



sometimes we share them with a stranger
Huntington Beach, California




and other times we don't
Santa Fe, New Mexico





but it's always best when we share them with friends
Huntington Beach, California

This post was inspired by my friend Malyss. (une chasseresse de bancs)

    Rentrée ce soir avec la crève en prime ; beaucoup de vent en Charente-Maritime.

  3. Hard to see the bench in the last one, but one supposes it must be there, just hidden.

    Public benches are certainly one of man's finer inventions.

    And of course there is the wonderful Georges Brassens song about "Bancs Publics" :

  7. Nice photos James! I love benches! I love them because my wife likes to shop and I don't. As long as there's a bench around, I'm good and she can take as long as she wants.

  11. Thank you for stopping by Amish Stories James, and you mention Newtown in your comment. Were you maybe talking about Newtown Connecticut maybe. I used to work in that area which is why I asked. Happy July 4 James and to your readers and please drop by again. Richard
