The walk up to the bench looking from the road even then the rubbish on the seat was visible,
That's as close as I went as nothing much to report still recovering from it been a totally new bench I’m thinking.

Been a while since I posted on here as really not been a lot of change. The new bench is still there the ground around it still very bare. Still not so sure I like this bench but we’ll see how it’s surrounds change.
First bit of litter I have come across here. Waste bin not too far away !!!

Yesterday I had a walk up to the bench after a couple of weeks. The last time I was there its was covered in snow so was expecting a change after the snow went. I wasn’t disappointed, I did get a change. The snow had melted and revelled a totally different bench !!!
Looked at it around..
Yep a different bench!!!!
Not sure I like this one as much and have no idea why the old one was moved. Looked ok to me, wasn’t rotten or broken. But will carry on a see over the coming weeks what happens to this one. Will it transform into three piece suit or a toilet seat in the coming months?
There is already evidence of Landscaping the makings of a banana tree?

Another heavy snow fall today and I was hoping to get back from work before the snow on the bench had melted. Earlier in the week I was disappointed as the snow had gone before I could get to the bench. Today I was lucky and took my Q along instead of the K5 to capture it.
Only just got there in time as the snow was beginning to melt.

Woke up to a light covering of snow and I was able nip out and visit the bench. Quite a difference from a few days ago.
In the back ground there is a rotting tree trunk. Will hopefully be seeing more of this in future blogs about the bench.
I then moved around the other side of the bench. Fine you may think. Suddenly found myself standing in dog shit. Moved over a bit and found more hidden in the snow.
the view from the bench and the red dog shit bin in clear view. Seem ironic to me that as I took in that view I was wading through dog muck.
The snow was still falling when I had to leave but if it gets thicker at some point perhaps I could get to record that.

This year I have decided on a couple of projects to encourage me to take Photos. So as well as my Photo a week project I decided to choose a place or an object I could keep going up to over time and take photo’s. Showing different views of the place and or how the object/place changes with time.
There’s a cycle track not far from my house and while riding my bike I saw a bench that I pass on a regular basis so thought the bench would be ideal. As its not too far away from home so the theory is that I could get there at least once or twice in the month.
First off I took a general view of the bench.
A more detailed shot.
Next time I may look at some of the plants growing around it or the rubbish left around it.
Until next time please take a seat.
