From the Sideline

Another Bench
January 2008

My iTunes: Brick by Ben Folds Five

I think every photographer has certain subjects they seek out to catch. This happens to be mine...benches. Seems silly I guess. It started when I was in London and I would find different styles of benches and I would try to shoot them from different and unique angles. I liked my finished product so much that I sought out more.

This is my first bench back here in America. I found it on the tennis court...shocking I know! Benches are so inviting to me...they remind me of conversation, community and most of all they remind me to rest and take in the world around me...one minute at a time.

Here is to a relaxing weekend!

My mom had a chair fixation. She loved looking at and buying chairs. I told her she must be tired all the time. You're not tired are you, Anna???

I love this photo. Benches are such definitely places of rest and relaxation :)

relaxing? Who you kidding? Well, hope you have one anyway! Wish I could take a nap on that bench in the middle of the day today.

I like how you captured the slight curve of the bench seat. Really nice shot.

These benches are neat throw-backs. More than other furniture (if they really can be called that), they have stood the test of time and place. That's why this picture could just have well been taken in the American south or in London.

Nice shot.
