What this bench needs is a good book :)) As you can gather from the trunk, it's a massive tree.

A romantic setting for Monday Jack! All that's missing you and a good book in hand. The machine to photograph your hand, waiting for it elmomento to use it! A perfect scene. I imagine so! The atmosphere is comfortable, the perfect light and the bank is an exquisite piece, maybe something hard? Let me get site! ... Many kisses and very good morning friend! Adela

It's a lovely shot of a lovely place, but I don't know about a good book there....doesn't look like it would be too comfortable for a long period of relaxing reading....a bit too hard on the butt.....
