day 38Waiting for the Conversation.

Benches are places where conversations begin, talks end, words are put on hold, thoughts are taken up again. Benches are places where once seated we can try to take in the world around us or we can try to forget the world we life in.

We can sit with strangers and never know them. Or we can sit amongst strangers and strike up a lasting conversation. We can sit with friends and be enthralled with their stories. Or we can sit amongst friends and choose not to say a word. The bench, like each of us, has a story to tell, depending on how we wish to engage with it.

I like the simplicity of this photo; the horizontal, stacked, broken lines.  The repetition of lines and colour, I find, only reinforces that simplicity.
