The Bird and the Bench

"Not a bench for me - I prefer the snow" said the pigeon and jumped down.

Hvor enn de er så skal alt sjekkes for mulige matrester :) En fin benk som kommer til nytte når solen dukker og og tiner all snøe,-

Her er Drammens bidrag i ukens benk. Ha en benkende og fin helg Rune :)

The lack of color and the lines in this photo go nicely with your destruction photo below. Do pigeons get skinny this time of year from all the snow?

Paulie said...

I agree with the pigeon although I am partial to benches and benches with snow on them are my favorite! It is not fair that everyone ELSE is getting snow and none for me. Unique bench tho.

I have a nifty bench up Thursday with a neat shadow but I will get my bench up for Friday soon also. It's still Thursday here.

Good for her! Hope there is some food down on the ground.

Unusual bench, nice to see it from below.

Dina said...

I just posted two playful benches. No snow.

Too cold, and I hate sitting on benches that do not have a back-rest. Maybe they make them like that so that you don't stay long.

Hello Rune

I posted a bench today, knowing that many do. I had the idea this was inspired by you but . . . maybe not . . . ?

Do you know how this tradition started?

Herlig! :)

If I were the bird, I'd choose the bench behind, which is more beautyful.
this one has a "military" side, strong, efficient..but not pretty!
I guess when you'll see my bench "with snow", you will laugh a lot! Ü

Interesting these so many benches and one of the oldest places to sit down.

Lew said...

You certainly have found a variety of construction methods for benches! This one looks like it will support a lot of weight.

Love this!

Birds generally are fond of under the bench. That's where they are linkely to find the crumbs of someone's lunch.

Carolyn Ford said...

I like this! Somehow I missed it when posted...better to find it now than never...:) I think this guy is desperately searching for a crumb!

Miss_Yves said...

Neither for me, even I I collect benches under the snow, too...
