Bench Series: Message (1)

Look very closely - can you see the message?

Look very closely – can you see the message?

November’s bench theme is messages. I took this photo as part of my Sculpture by the Sea collection (see the post here), and only when I looked at it on the larger screen of my laptop did I realise there is a small message plaque on the side. I’ve cropped the part of the photo and you can see the plaque in the feature image, but it’s a small part of a large photo so not very clear! This is what it says:

Marks Park – Sydney
Our little bench …
This place where Francisco proposed to Francisca on the 1st of October of 2009
Three years after Madelena was born in the same day (1st of October of 2012)
Love you …

Isn’t that lovely?

And if you’re curious, the sculpture behind the bench is “space time continuum v4” by Clayton Thompson.

  1. Aw, that is sweet. And so nice to see a message where the person(s) mentioned are still alive. I wonder how much it costs to have a plaque put on a bench? From the message it sounds as though the bench was already in place when he proposed.
