Beautiful composition here. Empty park benches are a favorite subject of mine and this one is fantastic.

Steve B said...

I don't know how you do it! This is a great image. So common place...but so unique.

Mary said...

Welcome, Kerri! And thanks, all. So nice to hear your encouragement on this very rainy and gray day!

A lovely, evocative photo...great with the park bench included.....though the quote's suggestion is often impossible to do.

You'd think it would, but oftentimes it's not. Is it? I like your lonely bench because the big tree is keeping it company.

Wow. That's quite a quote, Mary. I'll have to remember it!

Ginnie said...

Rats. That was me. :)

Love the dreamyness of this one! I want to sit right there and think. And breath. And think.
