Another shot from our foray around Durham. This bench seat was in full sunlight when we came upon it. In some ways I thought it looked rather sad. It’s not in a bad state of repair, but could do with a bit of a face-lift and it looked as though there really should be someone sitting on it. It’s whole purpose is to allow people to rest in relative comfort, to give space in someones busy life to pause and maybe contemplate something other than their normal daily grind. A place, where on that particular day, someone could just sit in the warmth of the sun and let its rays take away any cares and worries. But there it stood, empty and unfulfilled – I daresay a bit like many lives today.
