The Lonely Bench

The Lonely Bench

I always find something very sad and lonely about park benches during the winter months. I often wonder if these benches had feelings then how would they feel during the winter when literally nobody wants to sit and spend a bit of time with them. I started to think this myself as I sat on this exact bench only a couple of minutes before taking this shot. I had just bought a coffee in the nearby boat house restaurant and decided against sitting inside on such a beautiful winters morning. Don’t get me wrong here it was actually bloody freezing but still I always think if the sun is shining then get out and enjoy it. When you live in a county like Ireland you really do tend to appreciate these kind of sunny winters days. When I open the curtains in the morning during the winter and see just a sliver of sunshine I usually make up my mind to get out and about in it.

  1. Lovely picture. I’ve been seeing a lot of lonely benches lately and they are sad. Yet I also find them to be so serene. Maybe they want to rest as well.

    • Totally agree with you on that one. Maybe they are calling us to come and sit down for a while, thats my excuse for being such a lazy bones anyway.
      Some of my best photographs have been taken whilst sitting on a bench, you do tend to look around you a lot more when you sit still for a little while.
      Thanks for stoppng by.
