Benches

“A throne is only a bench covered with velvet.”
Napoleon Bonaparte (French General, Politician and Emperor (1804-14). 1769-1821)
I got interested in benches after visiting RuneE from Visual Norway. (Note the similar blog names! Great minds...) The variety of styles of benches offers many opportunities for photos plus restful periods to just sit and think. How many times have you done that in the past?!
