    THIS IS PERFECT! I was just telling my wife the blessing it was to just sit out back in a folding camping chair by our creek, listening to the water and the sounds of the children playing either in it, or swinging on the swings behind me. It actually inspired me to write, which I haven’t done for months. You image echoes that very experience and invites us all to share in it. The poems not ready yet; just finished the first draft tonight. Thanks for sharing, as always. These are the small gems of the week I look forward to seeing. Blessings!

      Thank you very much. We are very lucky that we have such an opportunity to spend time in nature and enjoy the beauty of spring. Unfortunately, not everyone can do it, they have to fight to survive.

      Thank you very much. I think you believe me, but many people have had the same thought, at least in regards to sitting and relaxing. It was the only bench that was not occupied when I took this picture.

    Wow! Wow! Wow! & More Wow! It is so wonderful, beautiful, amazing! One of my favorites photos. Makes me remember one of my stories… “The Bench oOn The Park”…
    Thank’s for share, Vova Zinger.

    I enjoy photographing park benches too. There is something about the idea of sitting there with no particular obligation to meet, letting your thoughts wander with the time.

      Thank you very much. I like being outside. But usually I have so many plans that I just don’t have time to just sit and relax.

        All the more reason to do so when you see a bench like this (after getting the picture of course!)… πŸ˜€

        But I hope that there is another bench around the corner, and it can be even more beautiful.

      Thank you very much. Maybe it looks strange, but for me it is more difficult to make a black and white photo than a color one.

      Thank you very much. I don’t know why, but despite the fact that it’s spring and there are a lot of amazing bright colors, I decided to make this photo black and white.It looks right to me, but that’s my opinion.

        I am of the same opinion, but perhaps it is because my son had sponsored a bench in Swampscott overlooking the harbor in memory of my father, his beloved grandfather. He takes time to sit on it and reflect before he launches the boat.

        I think it’s a good tradition to honor those we love and those who have passed away. Even if I read an unfamiliar name on a memorial plaque on a bench, I immediately remember my loved ones who are not with me, whom we miss very much.

      Thank you very much. You can sit down if you’re lucky. While I was taking this photo, I saw that this bench had been vacant for a very short time.

      Thanks a lot. I was very surprised that this bench was not occupied on such a beautiful sunny spring day.
