The Bench Project

All of these painted churches had large grounds beside them, with an additional building or two to support the annual feasts or whatever other activities go on.

There were a couple of people inside the church who’d come there with a guide. I didn’t listen to much the guide had to say, but I did hear her say that the church’s 2017 feast – which usually attracts four or five thousand people* – was cancelled because the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey created some concerns about food safety.

Anyway, I liked the benches and bench project and that one folding chair. And the pile of leaves.

*In 2000, the population of the town was 116. To put things into a bit of perspective.

  2. I am also puzzled by that sign . Perhaps that deserves a smiting . Plenty of locks on the door which maybe protects one from being zapped into eternity. Another one of your great finds.
