This was taken in Westwood Texas, and is basically a random picnic table between two gas pumps. I got a ton of pictures of it, or at least tried to. I think this one could be sharpened a bit to make it look better, but it just makes me smile to see it. I mean, what a strange place to put a picnic table...

Critique is always welcome!

How odd! (well seen). Are the pumps still in use? I don't think I'd want a picnic there!

I think it was quite difficult for you to capture this because of the low light - I suspect you were holding your camera, rather then using a tripod. It still makes a good image though, a real talking point! Smile

They are still in use. Which only made it weirder... But I think that's why too. The lighting was not very good and the use of a tripod would've helped, but I wasn't planning on photographing much that day either! Thank you!

It's always good to keep an eye out for the unusual. Well spotted and captured. Smile
