It’s beautiful! What is it?

First week of February I was shooting photos for Cee’s Black & White Photo Callenge: Textures. At that time I found so many wonderful textures around that I can post 3 pictures daily for a long time.

One day I went to the beach and made a photo below.

I liked it very much as there were different textures in it: sand, grass, leaves.

Then I turned around and suddenly saw another wonderful opportunity.

Without hesitation I made another picture that showed wood, metal and large leaves.

Then I put my tiny Canon in my pocket and was about to go home to have my breakfast.

Something stopped me. What was it?

At the last second I noticed letters on both knobs.

I bent down and read on the upper knob “PUSH”.

It became interesting! I pushed and got very cold shower!

When my wife saw me she asked: “Why are you wet?There was no rain.”

After I explained what happened she said: “You made my day!”

Can you believe it?!

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.
