5 photos for 5 challenges

TABLE, CHAIRS, SEATING OF ANY KIND

BENCHES

TEXTURES

DEPTH

SERENITY

This post was initially inspired by Cee’s black and white challenge “Table, Chairs, Seating of Any Kind”.

Then I noticed that there is a photo challenge “Benches” and in February photos of benches also must be in B & W.

I already took part before in the challenges “Textures”, “Depth” and “Serenity” but this time I decided to combine everything together.

A huge cake on the table shows depth of a daughter’s love to her mother.

You see tables, chairs, sofas and swing. They are from wood, iron, plastic, leather.

There is a depth of space behind benches of the third photo.

I also find serenity in this photo. The park is empty and beautiful in the early morning.

The fouth photo shows my college friend Ruben on the iron swing in Pocono Manor.

We are friends for 63 years. I am sure there is depth in our friendship.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By the way, in my first and only play Ruben is one of major characters. To read the play click on its title “LOVE AND MOSCOW DERBY”.

I have no idea what Ruben was thinking about when I shot this photo.

It is possible that he was remembering with gratitude the day when he was politely asked to marry his wife. They are together for many years and have four great-grandchildren.

It’s possible that he was simply enjoying gorgeous summer day and serenity of the place.

I published many posts about our life in Pocono Manor. The picture below shot in the historic Pocono Manor Inn. Chairs there covered by fabrics.

Depth (quotes and photos)

DEPTH

The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing called love and feel the depth, the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will discover that for you the world is transformed.

Jiddu Krishnamurti

The mark of your ignorance is the depth of your belief in injustice and tragedy. What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Master calls the butterfly.

Richard Bach

It is not length of life, but depth of life.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Depth of friendship does not depend on length of acquaintance.

Rabindranath Tagore

We have now sunk to a depth at which restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.

George Orwell
