An earlier upload in b&w. More atmospheric, to my eyes...
Thanks for looking,
Moira

Old friends
Sat on their park bench
Like bookends
A newspaper blown through the grass
Falls on the round toes
Of the high shoes
Of the old friends"

Simon and Garfunkel

Not old men, though still felt to share...

A Secret Garden, that's how I viewed this.
And I shall be singing Simon and Garfunkel to myself all day, which is not good news for Bill.
Thanks everyone. We are heading to Cragside today - unlike in Lockdown Mk 1, the National Trust is keeping its grounds open (also its car parks, loos and take-out refreshments).

The mono I find suits this scene better than the colour version. This image seems to have gentler tones from the colour one, which suits the tranquillity of the scene.

Has a different feel to the colour version; toggling between the two, I'm slightly biased towards colour, but still a fine presentation, Moira 😃👍

Having a bit of friendship time and some gossip. A lovely place to do it.

There's an intimacy to this which wasn't present in the colour version. More of a clandestine meeting than an open pause for a rest on a bench.

Thanks Malc, that's what I'm seeing. And thanks everyone.
