Benches in Post Office Square on a chilly March afternoon.

I would love to be sitting there with a big foaming to go coffee!

LOL. This is just too funny, I just got an e-mail today from a fellow that I met not too long ago telling me that he is going to be giving it another go with his ex. I just might need the address of that bench.

Another absolutely gorgeous B&W slice-of-life...

One certainly can feel the coldness...

It's no wonder there are no people around...

One does wonder, though, what that girl is doing sitting out there all by herself.

excellent composition and the black and white really makes this photo stand out. I am also glad you enjoyed the Skysong photo on my site. As always, thanks for your comments! I apologize if I am not able to respond more timely as sometimes my intense work gets in the way. I always love catching up on all of the photos and comments on people's websites though. I really admire the creativity and wonderful photos on everyone's websites.

I wonder if there are any carvings there that say "..." loves "...", the ones you normally see carved out on benches like this, lol! Very nice shot, loved the composition and perfect subject for mono.

The black and white gives strengh to the picture. For me , it's not a sad lonely bench. It 's a bench waiting for the next passer-by who will feel like sitting.It's an inviting and welcoming bench..

Well done B&W, with nice tonal range and shapes. Like the empty vs occupied bench contrast.

Oh! I love that bench -- the back is so tall that one can lean beck and really relax! It is beautifully made also!
