Park Bench


This is where I’ll be sleeping if I buy one more camera or one more photographic accessory.

The bench was kind of comfortable and the only thing missing is a beggar’s cup. Now I know why the term starving artist was coined.

Btw, laying on the grass, in the park, looking up at the sky is one of my favorite ways to relax outside.

  1. That’s cool! I love those b&w photos that have just one item in color. Nice cropping job by the way, it’s hard to get it just perfect and it looks like that’s what you did.

    Got a new challenge for you. Use that same technique in reverse. Your subject becomes b&w and the rest is in color. And it has to look cool, not just a photo of a merry-go-round that’s b&w with the background in color. Although that does sound sort of cool.

    Okay, if you can find a merry-go-round make the picture happen, V!

      thanks. fortunately, since i don’t have a full frame digital, i do my cropping in camera. meaning i always frame it as is when i take the picture and don’t have to crop it in a software program. unless i just couldn’t get the shot and have too much space or want to the image to appear larger. like the swings photo. that mother is cropped to death. such a waste of megapixel.

      i got mud on my shoe tiptoeing to that stupid bench. i guess that’s my purple heart of the day.

      challenge! funny you should say, i was going to reverse it and make the background in color and me in black and white. okay i’ll see what i can do, i still have to get that poetry shot done and – hey there’s the moon – the other color photo.

      oh i know where there’s a merry-go-round. making it look cool is another story.

  2. Feaking LOVE the mix of black and white with color!!!

    Ooooo…great idea, looking forward to seeing the reverse!

    I too enjoy laying in the grass, in the park, looking up at the sky!
