Bench Series: Arty | Grand Canyon

Bench, south rim of the Grand Canyon.

I seem to have become infected with Jude’s enthusiasm for benches. On my recent holiday in Canada and the US, I found myself zeroing in on benches. “Ooh, that’s a cool bench!” I would think. Snap snap. For Jude’s June theme of “arty benches“, I’ve chosen a bench on the south rim of the Grand Canyon, Arizona. Above is the original; below are a selection of Photoshopped alternatives. Do you have a favourite?




Bench Series: In the Garden

HeyJude’s first ever challenge is a good one: benches! The challenge runs for all of 2015, with a different theme each month. January is In the Garden. The benches below are all in the Botanic Gardens in Sydney.

Sydney is not all sun and surf! We get a lot of rain.

I like the fern backdrop to the fern bench.

February’s theme is Wooden Benches. I’d better get snapping!
