A Strange Bench



It seems it was made from remnants of what might have been a beautiful structure

It makes me wonder what it was a part of. It is certainly very elaborate.

Beautiful and a mystery! Would love to know what it was a part of! Great shot for the day, JM. Hope all is well with your Mom and your family.

Certainly not a typical bench.

It is good to catch up with your posts of the last few weeks. Julie and I were away in Papua New Guinea and Australia, in part to see the total solar eclipse last week.

Strange yes, and very old!

Strange bench indeed, but nice, although not as comfortable ...

Lowell said...

It certainly looks aged! Is that a real Muscovy duck? He is not impressed with the bench. Quack!

Randy said...

That is rustic but beautiful.

I enjoy your bench shots. They all looks so old and well worn.

Beautiful pieces, at lest someone has attempted to keep it, even if piecemeal and odd.
