Welcome shade

Most benches in Abu Dhabi tend to come with an accompanying shelter to provide some shade – essential when the sun beats down all day and air temperatures routinely exceed 40 degrees.

These benches are on Yas Island and, it must be said, are rather less interesting than the sinuous curves of the structure that shades them (not entirely successfully).

What colour is this bench?

Pink, actually. And although it looks metallic, it’s wooden.

However, as I was rendering the image into monochrome to meet Cee’s theme for this week, I accidentally hit on the Blue Hi-contrast filter pre-set in Lightroom and got this image. It just seemed too good to miss.

Benched

This well-weathered wooden bench is just outside the Cabinet Médicale, on the main road through our local village of Mézières-sur-Issoire. It’s been there for quite a while.

Mundane? Park Bench

Another mundane (?) image from St Junien: this park bench is also outside the local Tourist Information Office, not far from last week’s postbox. Properly framed, the symmetry is quite appealing.
