A couple of days ago Pommepal who blogs at Gypsy Life  had a post about benches which I commented on.  What she had actually done was reblog an earlier post from one of her other blogs, a post about benches – reblogging it (similar to reposting) to use in a meme on another blog highlighting benches.   Seems all the world loves benches 🙂

Benches – one of my favourite items to photograph.  The snaps I take of them don’t always turn out the way I want them to but they are usually reminders of places we’ve been and things we’ve seen.  Like these unusual shaped ones near the City to Sea Bridge in Wellington or the wide shaped wooden ones we saw in Vancouver while walking the False Creek Seawall.

And just by chance I can now add another post to my earlier Seen on a Sunday series from a couple of years ago where I told you – well, what else but about some things I’d Seen on a Sunday lol

In the first one  – Seen on Sunday #1 – I mentioned benches we’d seen made from recyled milk bottles.  Look at what I found while trawling my travel photo folders from another year.

Two different styles of the bench this time – the simple one above and this one with formed back and small table structure in front.  Perfect place for your cool drink while taking in the view
