Beautiful benches, although I get the feeling they're not used much anymore.

Nice photo but the scene does need a clean up.

Miraculous and strange corridor with benches.
Still beautiful. Autumn has left traces.

«Louis» enjoys your "Decay" series -although seeing the decay always has a sense of sadness about it. (Which is probably one of the points you wish to make...)

The sunset in «Louis'» Wordless Wednesday post was taken at Humboldt Bay some 265 miles/465 km north of Chez la Vache.

Sad to see the beautiful tilework decaying like that, JM!

I like this a lot: nostalgia, loneliness, abandonment.

I'll bet it was a beautiful garden.
