I love that bench! The back is inteesting! Of course the statue is also! I think every town must have one of those. . . Ous is in a city park and it is a man dressed in suit and tie and hat, reading the local newspepaer . . . and a little girl is standing in front of him with a tulip from her basket for him.

I must say you have found a bench with a real leaned-back attitude to life - so leaned that he stayed that way. I hope he treated you well :-)

PS Thank you for the comment! I haven't decided yet quite what I'm going to do about benches and Fridays and so forth, but we'll see... :-)

PPS I think it was real, old milk cans. Everything tasted the 50s and 60s. No one can do thinks like this better that the Britons.

Is he a friend of yours, Dina? He seems rather stiff and unfriendly! Bon weekend!

Dina, he looks a bit stiff, but a perfect gentleman to sit beside.

My bench is up now.

Dina said...

Shalom everyone! Thanks for all your funny and nice comments.
You can tell the guy is a tourist because his shirt is tucked in and he is wearing shoes instead of sandals. :)
But where did his cell phone go?

JM said...

Very cool!

Cloudia said...

Kay is right :)

Shabbat Shalom & Aloha, Friend!

Dina, every Friday when I visit here I am reminded that I have a couple of bench shots that I want to share. I'll remember one of these Fridays.

Rob said...

Oy veh, I think he is frozen solid. Too much frozen yogurt maybe.
Shabbat shalom, Dina. Thanks for your visit!
I used to know your area pretty well, used to work as a walking guide at the Jaffa Gate. And other places, 20 years ago. Nice to see Israel by an insider! Have a good shabbes!

Steffe said...

Who is that guy on the bench? He looks very relaxed but where are his friends?

Dick said...

I suppose he has a long talk on the phone, lol

Eki Qushay Akhwan said...
