365 Days of Photos – Day 14

I wonder how many of you see something out of the corner of your eye as you are driving down the street and immediately circle back so you can take a picture?

I do it all the time! Fortunately my job requires me to drive all over our county to visit clients. Thanks to this job requirement I spend a lot of time in the car. I am constantly watching for unique objects or beautiful scenery or even interesting shapes. I also try to notice the things I think many people drive by everyday and never see.

The picture I chose to post tonight I think is an extremely unique bench. It actually sits in the corner of someone’s yard on a very busy street. Surprisingly it was found only 5 or 6 blocks from my office….yet I’ve never noticed it (my excuse…I rarely drive this direction!)

Today, as I caught sight of this unique bench, I ditched the busy street and went around the block so I could take pictures of it! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

    That’s a pretty cool bench- I thought they were dancing bears until I expanded the photo. 🙂 I notice things all the time when I am driving but rarely stop because I am usually late for work or I think people will think I’m a weirdo. But I’m always late anyway so what’s a few more minutes? And I AM a weirdo so who cares anyway? I’m going to make a point of stopping more often! Thanks Tree!

    Wow! What a find. I’d love to learn more about the bench. I wondered if it had something to do with the Work Projects Administration (WPA) or judging by the medallion of what looks to be someone stoking a fire — a railroad. I bet it has a history.

      Surprisingly Colleen it is on Hemphill and short distance from the office…you too have probably driven by it and not noticed! I too would love to know its history.

    What a find! The motifs are really fascinating and unusual. I’ve spent years not stopping to check things out, but last year made a conscious decision to change that. Since then I’ve seen lots of cool things, and been later for appointments a whole lot more. On balance, I think that’s ok. 🙂

      Good for you!
      I think that’s ok too! I’ve learned if I don’t stop at the moment I see something interesting I will get distracted and forget to go back….so late I am!
