An old bench with a view

Not long ago we walked in an area I once knew well. This bench looked as if it had been there then. But is still served its purpose: Sitting on the bench we could see the youngest generation playing as it always has. Some things never change.

I think old benches are the best! That means the view has been very good for a long time! Beautiful post!

Lots of memories that bench must hold!

Dimple said...

That's a nice bench and playground. I don't have a bench this week, but I hope you'll com see my gate :-)

Barbara Martin said...

Older benches contain many memories, which this one must have.

My benches are up.

Dina said...

The bench is old but the playground equipment looks sleek and new. I'd like to play there (AND sit).

My benches with praying people on them are from Tiberias this week.

Shalom to you and all.

Å der så det perfekt ut å sitte en stund mens ungene leker.

Ha en flott helg, Rune.:)

Også en benk med stor nytteverdi, for barna bare må jo passes på!!! det leser vi om i aviser rett som det er desverre.

Her er min Rune;

Ha en superkjekk fredag du også gutten. Varm klem til Bergen kommer her ---->

Heges fotoblogg said...

Utsikten ser atskillig bedre ut enn benken :) Men den gjør nytten og har stått imot tidens tann ganske bra!

Hi Rune! I’m back home and happy to come here!! Sadly, the sky is grey; but wecan't have it all, in't it? ;))

Meanwhile Blogtrotter is showing you an incredible sea symphony of colours. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Thanks for telling me the photo wasn't showing - I did the post late last night and set blogger to schedule it as for once I'd done a skywatch post this week. I forgot to upload the photo and hadn't got round to checking it - have uploaded the photo now.

The concrete used to make this bench makes me think of a seventies construction..In those times, they used concrete in everything, and thou, a bench made of it is not so usual.The wooden parts have a wonderful texture.

Now this is what I call: a bench with character. It's the remnant of an almost forgotten past and has a lot to tell. Thanks for showing this gnarled piece of wood that makes such a wonderful place to sit on and to watch the future generation.

If benches could talk...

This one has seen a lot of backsides over the years and some were bigger than others.

Nice photograph.

I do agree and both the bench and the view looks recreational!

imac said...

Great bench and a beautiful park too.

Gärdsmygen said...

Ser skönt ut där och tur är det väl att vissa saker inte förändras!

GAWO said...

Her kjenner jeg meg igjen. Det har blitt mange tur runder rundt vannet her. Men å sette meg på benken, nei se det du, det har jeg aldri tatt meg tid til akkurat her. Trim er det som har stått i hodet da. Men kanskje jeg heller bør stoppe opp og se hva jeg kan fange inn i fotolinsen.

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

God gammel årgang du har pauset på her, men alder er ingen hindring, for faktum er at de eldste benkene er de koseligste å sitte på av en eller annen grunn. Ha en fin helg Rune, og takk for kommentarer :)

Sylvia said...

What a wonderful place to rest!

James said...

I like it. An old well used bench with a view.

N benches for me this week, but I have two for next week.

I love the grain of the old wood. It looks so full of character.
