Very colorful, creative, warm and inviting. I am glad the pigeons appear to be flying past rather than landing on them.

JM, I am a sucker for a colorful outdoor scene like these. They remind me a bit of the "bumper cars" found at local county fairs in our country. Great action with the birds in the first shot, but I like the perspective in the second. Merci!

MMM ... a bit like a children's play area.

I'll say! Love the bird in that first one. Cool!

joo said...

Very colourful indeed! They look lovely and hope they are comfy:)

Fun! Are they just there for the summer or are they a permanent fixture? Oh and I like the way you caught the bird (even though I would have to add yuck if it's a pigeon which I'm not sure it is).

Pagan Sphinx said...

Excellent photo, as always! The bird looks like it's about to pick up the boy with its talons!

VP said...

This is great! I'd love these on our lungomare... and I think they qualify as benches!

Francisca said...

Hehe... VP has been here... :-)

AB said...

Interesting. I guess they serve as both seat and flowerpot.

J Bar said...

That certainly is colourful.

Love the colorful sitting area and what are the chance of a bird flying into the shot. Great capture!

T. Becque said...

Oh neat, I've not seen these before. Interesting way to include seating!

Hilda said...

These have got to be the cutest planter-benches ever! They remind me of bumper cars. :)
