Nature is by and large to be found out of doors, a location where, it cannot be argued, there are never enough comfortable chairs - Fran Lebowitz

This bench is beautiful. I like the contrast of the blue with the greenery surrounding it and with the brown wood. This is a marvelous photo.

Leovi said...

I'm sure the bank has heard more than a declaration of love.

Brian Miller said...

and our comfort can keep us from fully experiencing that nature...smiles.

Lowell said...

I'm not sure whether this would qualify as a "comfortable chair" but is certainly an attractive bench!

Ha ha, the quote made me smile. Looks like a summertime photo, is it, or do you have some lovely sunshine there?
Thanks for your comment about Rufus. x

I was thinking of trnquility, that is going to be my next post. However, I could not find a bench like that at the place I visit. You have a specially trained eye for beauty which has been captured so nicely here. I loved it.

such a comforting place

R.Ramakrishnan said...

Beautiful shot and a nice and matching quote

Emm said...

Love this photo! And the quote is excellent too. There are definitely not enough comfortable chairs outside but I think I could manage to spend some time on that one.

sandeep said...

... and some times no chairs at all :)

but does it matter ... unless the chairs are as pretty as this!
