Empty Benches


Anthony Duce said...

Like the photo. It’s beautiful. It makes me think of many times in familiar places.
Even more I like your words, the ones you included. Thanks

It pinches when such inanimated seemingly innocent objects play such havor on our minds by conjuring painful memories of wonderful or shitty past :)

The post reminds me of a song by Don Mclean Empty Chairs ... kinda pretty close to your posts heading.

Here's the link to the song. Hope it wasn't a waste of your time.

empty benches always remind us of what could have been..despite being terse, you've said so much!

You know I used to see so many similar scenes in Kashmir, where I grew up and always wonder how serene they looked. But yes they look better with couples seated together

@ Anthony - Thank you :)

@ R - Yup! Its very true. Thanks for commenting!

@ Y.M - Thank you for the comment and no it wasn't a waste of my time. Its a beautiful song!Thanks for the link. I esp loved the following lines from the song...

"And I wonder if you know
That I never understood
That although you said you'd go
Until you did, I never thought you would"

@ WF - Very true :). Thanks for dropping by.

@ PS - There is no place like Kashmir. Too bad I didn't have a DSLR back in the 90's when I used to visit Kashmir every summer. Thanks for dropping by!

I love the pictue...the solitary bench among the greens,it has an element of nostalgia as well as a certain newness in it!
Memories...sweet or bitter, they always live on and induce a train of feelings and emotions.

I love both the writer AND the photographer in you. I wish I had the knack for photography.

@ Monica - Thanks for liking the picture. I dedicated it to you because you had asked me if I was going to post something in my own words. So this one was surely for you :)

P.s I have a thing for solitary benches.

Sobhit - Thanks for dropping by and ofcourse Monica is "pretty" popular (all puns intended), what else would you expect around here ;). Thanks for commenting again!

@ Almost loved - Welcome to my blog and thank you for the comment. I am no photographer. I am someone who likes to take pictures.. thats all. Its a fun activity. You should try it as well. :)
