I recently discovered another wonderful photo challenge called Bench Series hosted by Jude at Travel Words.
After coming across this photo challenge last week, I had planned this post for today, and literally posed my two dogs on this bench.
My talented, carpenter hubby built and re-purposed wood planks from old softball diamond backstops into a bench which sits in our backyard.
While at Lake Tahoe over the weekend, knowing I was going to take another bench photo, I was excited and ready to capture the very cool bench. As we walked around in the rain, we had trouble locating the bench. My hubby walked into the store near where the bench was last seen and was told that it was out for repair.
Why did I care? It was a bench with life-sized figures of John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd posed as the Blues Brothers. I had it all set up…in my mind. I’m not comfortable posting someone else’s photo, so here is the website for Up Shirt Creek in South Lake Tahoe, if you would like to take a look at their photo.
Not to be deterred, I quickly found another bench and, yes, I posed some leaves on it. Sad for my rookie attempt at this challenge, but it turned out OK.
I think I was just ecstatic to have some rain to photograph, let alone some autumn leaves!
