PPD 78



Another shot from the free day at the gardens last Sunday. Everyone else was walking around looking at the flowers and sculptures. So naturally I sat down and took twenty frames of... a bench.

But it looks so cool!

Your hatred of flowers was worth it. Nice shot.

Thank Tim!

Although for the record I don't hate flowers, I just think they're the subject of way too many photos. Basically they're overdone.

Oh sure, now he is being all PC and reiterating he doesn't harbor hatred. Just come out with it. You can hate flowers. It's okay...

I almost wish you hadn't told us it was a bench. At first glimpse I thought it was some abstract art and I was trying to "see" a picture in it. Guess I will have to stick to cloud gazing for that.

I regret any pain my earlier remarks about flowers may have caused. I harbor no ill-will against flowers, nor indeed any non-edible members of the plant family. Can't we all just get along?

I'm surprised you thought it was abstract. That just screams wood grain to me... although I did know where it came from.

When I was working on this I tried flipping it sideways, which actually made a startling impact. One of those horizontal lines vs vertical lines things. Maybe I'll post a flipped version later.

Apparently my issues extend to disregarding the obvious. Once I knew it was wood, duh, it looked like wood. Maybe it was the brightness that made me think of a painting at first. I don't know. I'm also the person who looks at the word verification text when I leave a comment and try to sound out the word?

Maybe it's just me... maybe I don't have enough going on here to occupy my mind. Maybe I need to take up knitting or something...

I see hundreds of tiny sea horsies surrounding a beautiful mermaid.
