Ah, love places and pictures like this. I always try for pictures like this, but it's hard to get the lighting right. So congrats for this shot, well done.

Have a wonderful Sunday and a good start into the new week.

Looks like a great place to enjoy a little bag lunch with a friend!
Check out the "urban decay" on the Hartford Daily Photo blog today....

Sharon said...

Not just ordinary decay, a little vandalism has occurred too!

Pagan Sphinx said...

It makes for a splendid photo. And perhaps the decay is partially a result of a lot of use! :-)

Such a beautiful lovers bench and it does seem to have been well used! Sad to see the graffiti! Hope you've had a good weekend, JM!

So romantic! ;) Just like Pagan Sphinx, I also thought fist that maybe it has just been used a lot!

Woody said...

Neat place, the overgrown vines add the the mystery.

Even in this state is still delightful!

Irina said...

You make decay look so bewitching. Your decay series is worth to be book printed.

Jacob said...

Looks decrepit and uncomfortable. I would not choose to sit her with my lover. Fascinating photo, though. You are the master of decay for sure!

Virginia said...

Damn taggers! They are ruining everywhere!!! I like this little bench without the scribble of course.

Herkistyttävä kuva. Olisi mukava istua tuossa ja antaa ajatusten lentää.
Kaunis.!

Have a good next week.

Jack said...

A lot of wear, a little vandalism. Nice image.

Deve ser para sentar um de frente para o outro e namorar, mas está bem acabadinho o lugar, poderia estar melhor cuidado, se bem que nestas horas a preocupação é bem outra.

It looks well used and well loved and very photogenic.

I'm imagining the lovers who might have sat once on those benches. And the ones who might sit there in the future.

It's hard to know whether to like this or not. It looks so lovely and yet my experience with spots like this that are overgrown and dank is that they smell and mosquitoes plaque the spot so not a great place to sit at all.

Randy said...

This is another wonderful spot. Minus the tagging.

Beautiful!

This is a masterpiece, I'll use it for aBoB!
