Bright benches


Sorry I've been a bit out of commission lately, but the (fairly) new job is still keeping me quite busy. Since I haven't had much time to shoot anything new, here's a look at some benches outside a fast food joint in Niagara Falls. I love the bright red of those benches. But the best part of this photo is the fake owl on the upper left corner to keep the pigeons at bay. For more red, visit Ruby Tuesday.

PS: I've been posting more regularly on my Travel Blog as I've got plenty of new shots to showcase over there. Please stop by and take a look.

I thought I recognized this street :)
Have been wondering where you were - hope you are at least enjoying the busyness of your (fairly) new job.

It's good to be busy but not tooo busy!

Red is an eye-popping color and also tends to make people antsy so maybe they painted the benches red so people wouldn't sit in one place too long.

The owl is funny. An assistant principal at a school where I taught placed a bunch of these at various intervals along a second story roof to frighten off the pigeons. When I came up to my classroom the next morning a pigeon was perched on the head of the owl!

I would like just one of those retro/modern benches in my garden!
I too wonder if the owl works!

Those benches are so bright they make me squint. Nice to see you back. These full time jobs really get in the way of important stuff like blogging, don't they?

And in front of a Dairy Queen, bonus.

A very bright and cheerful looking place to grab a hotdog!

Now that's red! I love those owls. They don't work, but they're fun. We have them here to keep away seagulls. Of course, whenever I see them, they are always surrounded by seagulls. Hope your job is going well!

What inviting red benches!

Bright is right! Whew.

Fascinating tidbit about the owl too. Love it when I learn something new from visiting blogs.

Very bright and a contrast to Niagara's more natural beauty? ;-)

Very cheerful for the people eating there, or looking over.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
