Great shots
I love the beauty of the old benches, and the feel in the way they've aged.
Thanks for sharing, JM...

This whole scene is quite appealing. It would make a perfect location for a fashion photo shoot or a painting.

The bench may be old, but it has great character!

Faded beauty just touches the soul.

What a gorgeous place again! I wonder if the reason you have so many old benches is that you have so many old people (like me) who need to sit and rest frequently. ;-)

Very nice, JM!

If I ever make it to Europe I'm visiting Oeiras, you've sold me on it. So much history and art, it's amazing.
