Bench of the week (25)

A reflection of one bench in a window
An indication of two more outside
A step backwards is indicated

The bench in the window disappears
The two outside are still there
Even more benches come into view
Further steps backwards are indicated

The bench from the window is now outside
The three white benches are not alone
They are just having a break

-----


My own interest in benches stems from the site 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. This 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.

I enjoy your benches. You certainly have an eye for this sort of thing.

Barbara Martin said...

It's great to see the different perspectives, RuneE.

My bench photo is up early.

Very interesting viewpoints. Really like the arrangement of the buildings too.
I've posted a bench this week too @

I'm amazed at how great of a reflection that you were able to use in the first shot. Fantastic job.

My bench is up:

PERBS said...

I really like the reflection but also the white benches that look so pretty and the huge bench that looks so tall. You sure got a bunch of them there!

I have mine ready -- I will go to my blog and reschedule it now.

PERBS said...

Where are they located -- I mean, what is the building behind them?

My bench is up now.

lynnwiles said...

RuneE, another fabulous old window - this time with the great bench reflecting. Very nice.

Dimple said...

You tell a good story with your benches this week, from reflection to rest it 3 shots!
I also have a bench story.

Lew said...

Even when the buildings in Norway need repair, the view is incredibly clean and neat!

Elizabeth Gilje said...

Love these pictures, especially the first one. Fantastic! I really like the whole series and the way you connected them. Nice!

Anne said...

Å hæledussan der VAR det benker du :-)) nesten så du hadde problemer med å velge her kan jeg tenke meg.

Det første bildet ditt her med den refleksjonen var jo bare så enorm da Rune. Spennende og litt annerledes til deg og være, men du som jeg likte det bilde.
Den stooore beken på langsiden av det sjarmerende huset der var jo som et monster i grunn!!!

Ha en flott helg, og sitt nå ikke så alt for lenge om gangen :-))

Dina said...

A post like a poem!

What an unusual combination of standing and leaning benches. The ones touching the house look like they are propping it up. :)

I found a bunch of benches at the Teachers College in Jerusalem.

GAWO said...

Det første bilde hørte hjemme på toppen. En klar vinner. :-) Men en førsteplass er ikke noe uten flere på laget så derfor er jeg glad du tok med de andre. Sånn blir det en fin helhet. Jeg liker gamle hus. Det er alltid noe spennende å finne der. Og denne gang fant du altså en hel familie med benker.

Tror jeg har en benk på lur denne uken også. Må sjekke :-)

Morten Pedersen said...

Det er flott å følge med på dine benker en vet aldri hva som kommer opp.

Ackworth born said...

a great series of shots telling a wonderful story.

ChrisJ said...

What a lot of benches you have! We have only one kind and they are all the same -- bus-stop benches. Not very inspiring.

The Cowgirl said...

The reflection - that is a truly great capture!

webruci said...

Great photos, good vision.
I love your blog. I'll be back.

Ha fin dag.

John said...

You obviously spent time over this one, nice series. I love the old white building.

Anne-Berit said...

Mangla ikke sitteplasser der nei.Benker både til beboerne og forbipasserende der skulle jeg tro.
Ha ei riktig god helg,og takk for alle dine trivelige kommentarer.

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Her er det benket opp til at mange kan sette seg ned og nyte en rast i solen. Nydelige bilder og ikke minst en nydelig blå himmel over de små koselige byggene.


Det er litt sol her i dag, men stadig noen skyer som ødlegger idyllen :)


Ha en riktig så fin helg Rune!

Tom said...

Great post.. love how you've done this Rune... and again I would like to spend time resting on them.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

You found quite a few in one small area. I guess this is a spot where people like to congregate but they are empty in the photo. I'm wondering if it's a bus or ferry station?

RennyBA's Terella said...

Not only the photo were great, but the story and the way you present it made the post even better - thanks for sharing!

Viola said...

Morsomt og stilfullt innlegg om benkene! Og det dukker opp en etter en :D Det var litt av et gammelt, spennende hus også :) Ha en flott helg!

Here is My bench of the week.

Dagrun said...

Se på det første bildet her da! SÅ utrolig flott det var. Noe å ha på veggen.

Tunes Photo said...

Jeg likte spesielt godt det første bildet. Det var så fint speilbilde!

imac said...

Nice Bench-s Rune, also what a great old building that is.

Petunia said...

Fin refleksjon i vinduet der og jeg likte spesielt godt at du hadde zoomet ut slik at vi vikk se hele miljøet:)
Koselig sted!

Kate said...

With or without a meme, bloggers come up with wonderful themes to post. I like your benches, as obviously others do, too. I'll see what I can find!

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

This is my first visit and post. I have found a bench with shadows, so come look if you have time.

The series above is one of my top faves. I love it! So interesting, and so key to the photographing experience. Try a new perspective, always.

AVCr8teur said...

Benches, benches everywhere! Some of those benches seem to block the view from the window.

Janie said...

That first reflection shot really captured my interest. I followed along as more were revealed. Great series!
