I know where this wonderful one will end up!!! Love the shadows too. Happy Sunday!

How very unusual. I remember love seats from years ago where people sat across from each other like this, but they never caught on. You do take some interesting photos!

Interessante a arquitetura pensar em encontros, no face to face. Muito bom.

Imagino que relacionamentos que tenham dificuldades em se olhar nunca irão sentar em um banco assim, ou se sentarem olharão para frente, para o nada.

Love this funny but usefull thinks in a city. Caught very well according to me, the shades make a complete composition.

What an interesting bench, I've never seen anything like it before. And I love the play of shadow across the photo, you clearly chose the time of day carefully.

A very clever bench!

What a beautiful, if lonely, bench scene with a backdrop of stone paving and long shadows.

What a fun, great capture for the day, JM! I've never seen a "lovers' bench" like this one before! I love it! Love the stones and the shadows as well! Hope you have a great week!

What an interesting bench, a modern version of a Victorian item...

Very unusual! I love the pattern of the bricks.

Randy said...

I love it. I would love to have one in a garden.

Joan Elizabeth said...

Do people use it? It would be a bit confronting to use with a stranger.

Gine said...

Bien pratique pour faire la conversation ... ou pour un petit flirt ...

The bench and the cobblestones, together with the shadows make this a visually stunning photo!

As "conversadeiras" existiram desde há séculos, algumas são já peças de museu.
esta adaptação para os tempos modernos, e para um jardim público é uma ideia genial. Tenho que por lá passar, obrigada JM
