Has something bright or reflective caught you eye?
This golden bench is a result of the rising sun. The rest of the day it is a plain wooden seat.
This is my final contribution to Jude’s bench challenge. A mix of antique, ornate and rustic benches.
It’s been a wonderful challenge, one that has inspired me to take notice of an ordinary object and take photos in a variety of angles and styles. I’m looking forward to new challenges next year but perhaps the odd bench will still appear in my future posts.
I’ve written previously about MONA, the Museum of Old and New Art, in Tasmania.
Here are some of their modern benches for Jude’s bench challenge.
These are at the ferry terminal.
And these on their ferry.
Although not a bench, these little stools are fun and were used to sit on and as mini tables during an open air Sunday afternoon concert.
This month, Jude’s challenge is looking for benches with someone or something on it.
Here are a few benches I have seen with a variety of things on them.
Firstly, some yarn bombing.
Here in Tasmania, some houses have benches or sofas out on their front veranda’s. Often with boots or shoes or kid’s toys left alongside. This caught my eye.
This bench is attached to a flower stall. An old tin is sitting on the bench for payments.
I was concerned when I saw these car keys on a public bench. As I looked around, a young boy ran up and placed some more rocks on the pile. His mum and brother were a few metres away so Mum knew her keys were part of the game.
Does rain on a bench count, Jude?
Although not related to benches, here are a few other fun yarn bombs that I have seen in recent weeks.
This month, Jude’s “bench series” is looking for benches with someone or something on it.
I’m not very comfortable with “street photography” so this has been an interesting challenge. It’s been fun trying some editing techniques too. Here are a few back views.

I couldn’t resist these two eating ice cream.

Thanks for this challenge Jude. I’m looking for benches with things on, for my next contribution.
