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.

Pups on the 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!

  1. How nice to see a home-made bench and how clever of your little dogs to pose so nicely for you! Shame about the Blues Brothers bench, but I love the perspective of your rainy bench. Thanks for joining in Terri

  2. Cutie pie pups! Love their expression and great bench too, btw!
    And I like the rain drops on the other bench too…plus the leaves 🙂 Nice composition 🙂
    Hmm, indeed hooray for the rain, just hoping not too much like what happened with the mudslides near LA last week. Such scary footage I saw on TV!
    Sending you all my very best for a very happy Tuesday, my friend!

    1. Happy Tuesday, Lia!! Thank you! If the predictions are true, Nor Cal should get a lot of rain, but we really need snow in the Sierras. Luckily Sacramento is so flat, the mudslides would be unlikely (keeping fingers crossed). Have a wonderful day, girlfriend!

  3. I really like the photo with the pups on the lovely bench that your hubby built. The shadows are great and the pups are adorable. I am sorry that you missed out on the Jake and Elwood bench. I did click through to see it on Up Shirt Creek and now I want to go there.

    Enjoy your autumn and your rain!
