Ailsa’s travel photo challenge: Benches

Every park bench has a story to tell, says Ailsa.  She has posted some photos of benches to inspire all of us.

If the empty bench on the right side of this small park in Paris could tell a story, it would be this:  I had been sitting on it moments before I took the photo, watching a gardener and his disabled assistant plant flowers in the lawn while I recorded the details of the activity in my journal.

Clicking twice to enlarge the image will reveal the little plastic covers over each lawn flower.

    • The French are not averse to hard work when beautifying their cities, or their food. They’re not casual about detail. It’s very interesting to someone like me from the other end of the world where planting a lawn with flowers would be too much bother.


  1. They know how to make the most of a small space. Where I come from, lawns are for walking on, running on, sitting on. But not in this Parisian park (or most others).
