The other week I posted some benches I had seen in a garden – this month I have some in Black and White or monochrome as others like to say.  I’m not too good at spotting situations where they show up more easily in B/W so here are some I like – even tho’ they might not be the best examples.

This little wooden one was at the foot of the escalators right by a car park exit door – just in the right spot for a weary shopper to collect their bags and thoughts together before leaving.


The rotunda in the big park at Mooroolbark has long benches – just right for families to shelter from the heat – or the drizzle that was coming down this day. 


A little covered area near the pond in Kilsyth – a favourite spot for family gatherings at the weekends. A good spot for picnics – Cool in the summer with shelter on rainy days.


This is ‘My’ bench, the one featured in the header picture above – the nearby shrubs have grown and the bench now has a more mature look about it.  Sitting on it makes you feel as though you really are in the bush and not in a suburban park.


If you pop over to Jude’s blog (Travel Words) you might just see some more in the Bench Series – February Black and White/Monochrome

And if you want to join in the Bench Series she has a list of monthly themes here.
