Shadow Shot Sunday #58, Mellow Yellow Monday #25 - Have a Seat

Yesterday, several homeowners in our community got together to continue sprucing up our neighborhood park and then have a barbecue. Our homeowners association has worked hard the past couple of years to rescue our wonderful little park after being neglected for way too long.

One of the jobs yesterday was to repaint a couple of our park benches from a dark green color to what else--yellow! You know darn well the camera came out to take a picture of the newly painted bench.

A Cheerful Place to Sit

To see more great shots with yellow or shadow themes or to play along, click on the Mellow Yellow or Shadow Shot Sunday badges below.



Note: bobbie gave me the idea for Shadow Shot Sunday so I've modified my post to include my first Shadow Shot Sunday picture. Thanks, bobbie.

I love the yellow bench. Much better than a dark color. That must really perk up the neighborhood.

Definitely an inviting place to sit a while. I love photographing benches myself and would love to add yours to my collection if you don't mind.
Hugs and blessings,
