What a serene spot. Love the fluffy plants.

Looks like if you sit on that bench you would get a wet bum!

A park bench is always so inviting. I'd like to sit a while and watch the world go by.

A weathered bench, dried grass, a scene of total peace.

A well-used source of comfort.

Nice composition, Daryl!

Tammy said...

The perfect place to take a load off!

Deb said...

This looks very familiar to me and I don't know why? Could this be a bench I have set my butt on? Or perhaps, it was featured on Seinfeld a few hundred times.

Diane said...

Love those tall grasses framing the bench!

Fireblossom said...

Oh, I need that place to sit and be with the browns and grays right now.

I could sit there for a long time.

Mental P Mama said...

I know that bench;)

Jacob said...

That's by a church, right. And a good thing, too. Some sermons are downright tiring.

Nicely composed Daryl...and great colors, too.

Did you take advantage of this bench after a day of heavy shooting?

Ken Mac said...

hmm. St Luke's?

Mojo said...

Wow. You have your own throne! Fitting. Spacious too! Alla ya'll could sit there. You Ray and Rosie.

Hey, sharing is caring, right?

Titanium said...

Looks like a great place for a biggie-size time out. Nicely done!

Hilary said...

Looks like a good place for a think or a chat.

Ken Mac said...

but Daryl this is a New York blog! Keep it real!! (just kidding...heck I did Boston a while back....)

Deb said...

I like the way you framed this - plus the colors are just perfect. It does invite one to sit down and rest.

SandyCarlson said...

Thank God for churches. The are places of peace on the outside (if not always/as well as) on the inside. Looks like a nice place to set a spell.

Thank you for coming by! I'd like to rad awhile upon this bench!

Louise said...

Lovely bench. I doubt it's story is as good at THE bench, though. I love how it's tucked between the grasses. It seems kind of cozy.

DesertHen said...

A quiet thinking spot!

Clueless in Boston said...

Nice bench. Looks like it would be a great place to sit and watch the city for awhile.

Cloudia said...

Dried pampas grass is almost as beautiful as when it is still in full bloom.....especially when it is next to such an inviting bench =)

Carver said...

I love tall brown grass in the winter so much. I hate to see it chopped and always am happy when I see it like this. Great shot on either side of the bench.

TSannie said...

I know that bench, too!

Snooty Primadona said...

Oh, I want that to be my backyard!

Kerri said...

Ah, another lovely bench...just waiting for someone to relax and breathe in the day. Lovely!
