Welcome to the first post of a new weekly photo challenge. An invitation to take a load off and share a favorite perch by linking your post to this one, either with a comment or pingback. I am new to this, but will do my best to be a good hostess.
Pull Up a Seat is the theme: specifically the places one sits, might sit, or art about seats or sitting.
As I get older I find myself more and more often looking for a place to perch when I am out and about. This might be a chair, a bench, a wall, a pew…maybe even a log or a rock. These spots can be artfully designed, quirky or very plain, sometimes they have a view, sometimes you meet someone else who needs a rest.
Park benches with a butterfly motif in People’s Square, Weifang, Shandong Province, China. This area was a favorite of mine when my son lived in Weifang. After walking kilometers on stone pavement these are a welcome sight. During the week, when I took these photos, it is a quiet place. On the weekends it is pretty busy, especially when the wind is up: it is a popular place to fly kites. The butterfly motif is the symbol of Weifang, it comes from the traditional bamboo butterfly kites popular in this region.
Over to you. Add a link to your post in the comment section.
