Bench Series: December

With 60 degrees Fahrenheit outside, in mid-town Manhattan, I could not post a photo that I took of benches in the snow in January 2011, so here are some benches in the Clingendael Park in The Hague instead, on a sunny day in October 2014.

Bench series: October: People on Benches

Participating in the bench challenge. Other responses can be found here.

The photo of this bench was taken a couple of years ago in the Donald M. Kendall Sculpture Gardens at the Pepsico Headquarters outside Purchase, NY. The piece is: “Three People on Four Benches”  by George Segal. In the back you can see “Giant Trowel II” by Claes Oldenburg. I visited the garden on a very hot summer day and it was empty!

We have had a wooden bench in the family, for around fifty years, which was always in my parents’ garden and is now on the balcony of my daughter’s apartment. It was bought in the UK and shipped to the Netherlands.
