Today we are back in the centre of Bergen. We are at a square called Torgalmenningen. It is the main square in the city and is often called "The heart of Bergen". Most of it was built in the 20s and 30s after a great fire destroyed a large part of of this area in 1916. During the the last decade or so much of this square has received a much needed renovation. New benches were of course included.
The benches are made of granite and wood with some supporting steel structures
They are back to back, and there are quite many of them
And they are being used...
My own interest in benches were initiated by the sites published by PERBS and Kerri and the site published by Malyss. Also, others have shown an interest in the subject, so I have started to take photos of benches when I "stumble" across one and post them on Fridays.
It is not a "proper" meme, but if anyone else would like to join me in publishing benches on Fridays (or any other day for that matter), they are of course welcome to do so. I have therefore not made a blog roll, but visits to my former posts (see archives in the sidebar), to the previous mentioned sites and to Gerald's site Ackworth Born, Gone West (he keeps a small tab of benches he finds on his way) might be profitable.
Unless stated otherwise, all photos are the copyright of the owner of this blog and may not be used without my permission.
Where to find me...
If you want to.

Regarding Blogger Plus
This is a Bloger Plus free zone. I'm sorry, but comments without a proper"return" address can't be answered - I just will not be admitted. And (among other things), I can't stand the "pushy" tactics of Google.
I have it!
Policy on Awards
I have like most other bloggers received a number of Awards during the time I have been blogging. In the process of cleaning up my blog I have moved them to a separate post. If I should receive any more they will be added at the end of this post. I have received them in the spirit they have been given and are grateful for them all. I will continue to do so, but I will not pass them on.
