The cemetery we visited was well tended and the stones were in good shape, but this bench had seen better days. I like the way the harsh light plays on the brick wall, and makes the line of brickwork ambiguous

The metal frame has beautiful rust. All you have to do is replace new boards to restore the charm of this bench.

The slats have fallen in a very artistic arrangement too. Lovely colour palette

I, too, like the light and the play between the shadows and the recesses in the wall.

An interesting find that won't stand for long. I love the way the shadows dance across the wall here.
