Three Benches

 Bench in dappled shade

Look closely and you can see snow on this bench's seat. No footprints either. No one has been sitting here in the shade for a while.

 Bench under a greenhouse frame

No one has been sitting on this bench either. There are tons of shadows though resting below the frames.

Bench on the ice on Lake Simcoe

It may actually be on the edge of a dock. I can't tell as I used a telephoto lens to take this photo. There is a hole in the ice and some open water. I'm not sure what that's all about. There is also an extension cord and a plug on the bench and I have no clue what that's for either. Anyone have any ideas?

I am linking to Shadow Shot Sunday 2 HERE.

maybe a motor to keep the water hole open?

Good photos.

These benches aren't going to see any serious use for awhile yet!

Number 2 and 3 are my favourites. The second shot is like something from a space movie!

TexWisGirl said...

someone's been fishing? :)

Geoff Wilkinson said...

I agree with Ciel, number 2 is my favourite,but here are so many angles plus light and shade..

Ginny said...

I think someone could have been ice fishing! My favorite bench is the pretty last one.

Always inviting.

I love to take pics of benches. Yours are good. I have no idea about the extension cords. I could sure invent a story though.

I like the one under the tree the best - as long as it were Summer where the cooling shade that might be more appreciated - then!

Sylvia K said...

Ah, love your "bench" shadow post for the day!! And interesting, too, who was there sitting out in the snowy cold??? You do find the good ones! Hope your weekend is going well!! Enjoy!

Rose said...

Have no clue about the electric cord, but I sure would love to know! I bet it would be cold sitting there!

Stephanie said...

Strange about the cord, great bench shots!

Randy said...

I agree with William.

Chandra Eswaran said...

These are awesome photos, but I haven't got the faintest clue why there would be an electrical cord there, Tina! You gonna need Columbo for that :)

Have a Beautiful Day!
Peace :)

Knipsa Passtscho said...

Beautiful benches in sunshine :)
Like the second one because of the many shadow lines and I think the plug is for someones heating blanket :)))
Have a beautiful Sunday!

I love the bench in the second photo (as well as the photo itself) but haven't a clue about the electric cord.

Perhaps it's just there for the shock value? hehe

Kay said...

I love that second shot! The extension cord? That's to plug in the portable space heater! If you're going to sit here you may as well be comfortable, right?

Gemma Wiseman said...

Such beautiful shadow patterns. Love Kay's answer about the space heater, but I would add a double adapter and have some music too.

Kate said...

All three waiting for better weather!

Karl Demetz said...

I agree with Kate, three nice pictures !

Sandra said...

a heated bench? that is odd to have the cord there.. maybe someone sat on it and used and electric blanket? can you tell i am reaching way out for the explanation? those shadows are so pretty

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Beautifully structured photos, EG. I am ready for the snow to go, though!
It could be a dock bubbler, and they can't get the extension out. Lovely mystery!

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

The second bench seems so forlorn with all that snow!

Quite different, but equally cold!

Norma Ruttan said...

love these! at first, I thought the greenhouse frame was monkey bars!

Karen S. said...

There is something so mystifying in a bench, I like shooting them too. All of these are great captures.

RedPat said...

That last one is a mystery!

Margaret Adamson said...

I like all three shots for different reasons but you would not catch me sitting on the last one. I think it might disappear!!

Kerri Farley said...

LOVE your benches!!

A Quiet Corner said...

Although I am not an ice fisherman, would there ever be a reason to use a cord near water?!?!? That would be very odd!!!!...:)JP

Alexa T said...

Quite intriguing... The bench is on the shore of the lake? so close to the water, indeed... not a clue... Interesting vision of the 3 benches...
Have a sunny and happy week of March!

Sounds like ice fishing, but I'm no expert. I've never been ice fishing. Love the photos.
