Bench of the week

I had intended to visit the Arboretum and Botanical Garden here in Bergen to try to get some pictures of flowers. They have a nice selection of flowers, bushes and trees from all over the world spread over a large area and accessible to one and all. However, today I'll present the most original bench I have ever seen (bench defined as a place seating more than two people). On the first picture one seat is obvious, but have a look below:

No problem seating two - maybe three people. And it is comfortable. I've tried.

Anemone said...

John said...

Denne var artig. Flott fanget Rune.

Anemone said...

Eksperten på "blomstene og biene" Rune, han sender du sporenstreks hit!!

Men husk jeg er en kveldstrøtt sjel.

Absolutt en av de mest kreative benkene så langt :) Godt fanget! God helg Rune, og takk for kommentarer :)

What a neat find! Doesn't look comfortable but good for a rest when one is tired, I suppose. . . Just where did you find this? Does the carving represent something? In a way it looks like an Indian with a papoose on her back . . .

Unique bench indeed? But for 3 people? It looks like it'd be good for 3 children maybe. ;-) But hey! It's hard to tell how big it actually is.

Hi Rune! Amazing bench! Comfortable? OK, I trust you... ;)
Loved the unplugged sky... ;)

Now, one week working without coming here and you don’t even remember that
Blogtrotter still exists. But it’s there, even if India 2008 has come to an end… ;)). Have a great weekend!

Is this a new feature of yours Rune? Bench of the week?

Abe Lincoln said...

Take a seat. A free one at that. Neat idea.

Fantastic capture Rune.. I just love the time effort and thought that as gone into this. I think the second shot resembles a torso, it really is a great bench.

Thank you for all your visits, and thanks for taking the time to comment also my friend, I am so glad to have you visiting.

Yes, that's wonderful, a nice highback bench, quite ingenious!

Malyss said...

It perfectly suits to the definition of a bench, it's made by man's hand, there's nothing to say!I would classify it in the "wild" benches :-))
Will you give us a "bench of the week " every week? In this case, I'm impatient to see what you'll find!
Have a good week-end!

Nice one, maybe there will come leaves on it when spring is there.

Marie said...

Kreativt!

Marka said...

Now that is a really neat bench.

I would like a softer seat.

Ida said...

Denne stolen/benken omfavner sine besøkende. ;) Morsomt bilde! :)

Kate said...

There's something about these photos that make me wince. Poor tree! I hope it didn't hurt too much!

Barbara Martin said...

This is a good way to use a tree, and to have a personal recommendation of the photographer of its being comfortable is surely a bonus.
