Bench Life 4

Not sure when I'll get another chance to do a Bench shot this year so thought I'd do two today! At first not much was happening and I was a little disappointed but within a couple of minutes the situation changed. The two young women came up behind the bench and it surprised me when the older woman on the bench got up and started talking to them but they obviously knew each other well. A gang of pigeons caught the bench guys interest and then the camera guy appeared with his tripod. i suddenly felt it was time. Almost immediately after this shot they all disappeared and the bench was empty leaving it free for me to try it for the first time!
I love your bench shots :D

I love this concept. I have a friend on facebook who is doing a bus stop series. His view is from above like yours and its really effective. These are a bit like reality TV except a reality -shoot lol

A photographer taking photos of a photographer--too cool. What does this bench face that it's so busy?

@clarissajohal It's looking straight at Nelson's Column! I was going to take a picture of the view but it's a bit old hat!

Hey - more bench! Love the idea of a 'gang of pigeons' - strutting about and looking cool. And the bench looks very appealing and wooden.

@islawight Yeah I got a close up look today and it's really nice. no wonder everyone sits there! I was going to use a proper collective noun for the pigeons but there wasn't really enough of them...
