Seating arrangement


There are a lot of things I like about this handmade bench: the 2×4 legs (one with paint, one without), the way the carpet’s not centered, the scallops on the bottom edge of the carpet, that dead branch guarding the approach.

But what I like best is thinking that someone missed their loved one so much they build it in the first place.

  1. Sometimes there is evidence that humanity still exists in our world.


  2. This is very nice and great narrative. Otherwise one might cringe at the crudeness. Knew a lady who would put a tarp over the grave of her son when it was going to rain. As to yesterday let’s just call the black cord texture.


    • Texture. Yes, I’m sure that’s what I was thinking…

      Thanks for your comments on this image; I made it a while back, and I needed a minute to remember what it was about it that caught my eye…

      A tarp over a child’s grave is the saddest thing I’ve heard today.
