Ruby Tuesday: Bench Roses

Last week Mary asked for a “macro.” Not sure how close a macro is, but I did enjoy this bench of roses I found in New Brunswick.

A little more of the bench.

And here’s the bench in its setting on Easton Avenue in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Great and original! Good find.

Patti says

Hi Leora,
Very nice red bench with its roses. I didn't share a macro shot, because I didn't have one (insert sad face here).

Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Felisol says

Dear Leora,
I love the Macro thing.
Are the roses carved in wood?
They were so decorative.

Beautiful Macro shots! And the bench was painted in a lovely way leaving some of it unpainted, yes? Happy Ruby Tuesday! Let's do Macros again next week.

Isn't it something what we find as we look to satisfy a meme.
This was a wonderful find and I like how you went in close and gradually back out for us.

Mojo says

I'm not sure if it's distance or depth of field that defines a "macro", but I'd say you've met whatever criteria there might be. And if you haven't, so what? It's still a great photo -- great series actually.

Red is a soft and inviting color. Those benches look nicely detailed. What is more important is the positioning of these benches along the sidewalk. Much like a neighborhood where all knew all and what better than a place for the neighbors to gather! Alas, that was 75 years ago, well before the expansive suburbs were thw attraction. A nice view!

Lovely bench and the red is looking great in brass :)

Miranda says

I love the last pic, the way the leaves go around the railing. Nice Rubys!

Pia K says

Such pretty benches, I've seen a few similar ones here and there in Sweden too though then with the roses being blue and the wood dark brown. Striking in another way than this bright red ones. Happy RT!

ShutterHappyJenn says

Nice looking benches. I love the mix of colors on the roses designs.

My RT post is here if you want to visit it. I'd be glad if you do. Thanks!

I didn't even remember that she asked for a macro..but that seems to meet the bill...

Sara Chapman in Seattle says

I like your three shots very much. Fave is maybe the middle one, but the group is wonderful. Great ruby, ruby red. Happy RT!

What a beauty of a bench! And, the photos are wonderful...I love the perspectives!

Dianne says

you really captured the detail! and thanks for the shot of the whole bench - I imagined it differently based on the close-ups

great shots!!

Jientje says

That is suchna vivid shade of red Leora, and that bench has such lovely detail! Perfect!

A Living Nadneyda says

My favorite? No. 2. Macro is my favorite camera setting, since it allows for a variety of focal qualities, especially fun when getting up close & personal with flowers.

soulbrush says

what awesome photos.

Raven says

Neat bench. I'd love to have a bench or two like that for my back porch. They are on my wish list.

Raven says

I really like those benches.
