I wonder how many of you see something out of the corner of your eye as you are driving down the street and immediately circle back so you can take a picture?
I do it all the time! Fortunately my job requires me to drive all over our county to visit clients. Thanks to this job requirement I spend a lot of time in the car. I am constantly watching for unique objects or beautiful scenery or even interesting shapes. I also try to notice the things I think many people drive by everyday and never see.
The picture I chose to post tonight I think is an extremely unique bench. It actually sits in the corner of someone’s yard on a very busy street. Surprisingly it was found only 5 or 6 blocks from my office….yet I’ve never noticed it (my excuse…I rarely drive this direction!)
Today, as I caught sight of this unique bench, I ditched the busy street and went around the block so I could take pictures of it! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
That’s a pretty cool bench- I thought they were dancing bears until I expanded the photo. 🙂 I notice things all the time when I am driving but rarely stop because I am usually late for work or I think people will think I’m a weirdo. But I’m always late anyway so what’s a few more minutes? And I AM a weirdo so who cares anyway? I’m going to make a point of stopping more often! Thanks Tree!
LOL….exactly! You are quite welcome….I am always excited when I can encourage someone to chase the squirrels with me!!
Very unique! Wonderful capture, Tree.
That bench would surely fetch a penny at an antique auction. Very cool capture.
It is truly unique isn’t it?!
A wonderful find! I can imagine it fully restored. It would be amazing 🙂
Wow! What a find. I’d love to learn more about the bench. I wondered if it had something to do with the Work Projects Administration (WPA) or judging by the medallion of what looks to be someone stoking a fire — a railroad. I bet it has a history.
Surprisingly Colleen it is on Hemphill and short distance from the office…you too have probably driven by it and not noticed! I too would love to know its history.
What a find! The motifs are really fascinating and unusual. I’ve spent years not stopping to check things out, but last year made a conscious decision to change that. Since then I’ve seen lots of cool things, and been later for appointments a whole lot more. On balance, I think that’s ok. 🙂
Good for you!
I think that’s ok too! I’ve learned if I don’t stop at the moment I see something interesting I will get distracted and forget to go back….so late I am!
