From a Meyer-Optik Telemegor 180/5.5, which tends to result in pictures that are quite soft and warm:

Posted images of these benches quite a while back-but these are fresh, not to mention funky. Like those in g026r image

No many picnic on these benches, but they do give an idea of the massive size of these WW1 warship guns and shells.

Geez! I wonder what the occupants of the buildings in the background think. They're just one shell away from oblivion.

Here's another bench with a view. Cape Arago state park, Oregon.

I look at an image like that Paul, and I wonder, "why did they put that bench there, is that actually a place someone would want to sit?" Often when I walk through the park and see benches like that, it's ofetn at places where the park staff who conduct the tours stop and talk, and the people who aren't in such good shape can sit down and have a rest. Why do you suppose that one was where it is?

I can relate to that bench location somewhat Norm -

A couple years ago when my RA was in its beginning, my job took me to Columbus Ohio where I was stuck for 24 hours twice a month. Being a country boy, the first thing I did was to find somewhere to spend my time where I would be in familiar territory - in the woods! I found a city run park that was beautiful with crushed stone paths that were all wheelchair compatible. At that point I could walk for maybe 1/4 mile at a time, and there just happened to be a bench about every 1/4 mile - what a relief!

I never thought that much about it until I read your post about the location of the benches - then it made me realize that maybe they were positioned just for people like me.

Hi Norm - I think Stan made some valid points in his response to you. While the location looks somewhat remote, it's actually in a fairly busy city park. There are paved pathways all over, with many unpaved paths like the one pictured. Nothing too strenuous, and the paths are mostly level, so it's a place for folks for all ages to enjoy. I like coming here to escape the heat of summer, or to give the dogs (and myself!) some exercise.
