The improvised bench

Would you sit here? I spotted this unique bench at the Catholic University on Michigan Avenue. You will be surprised to know that that this bench is very sturdy. Have a nice weekend see you on monday!

It must be dangerous to seat in that bench! Pure balance.
Dotun Ayodeji: lol...it's very strong I guarantee you.

Excellent capture. I probably would have walked by this and never thought much about it. But it's a cool shot for sure.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks PJ, it's very easy to miss.

Just remember to seat your girlfriend on the higher side of the bench so that she can slide into your arms, wiggle the seat so that she then hold on tighter.

Great capture
Dotun Ayodeji: lol..very nice suggestion Louis!

Good marble costs big bucks, it had better be secure!! Lovely photo buddy, nice contrast, exposure and focus. You also have a great weekend. Regards, Neil.
Dotun Ayodeji: I hope you had a nice one too, thanks Neil.

Awww. Who would have ever thought of this! I know that marble is heavy so I'm guessing it would take a lot to move it, so YES, I would definitely sit on that bench, just to say I did it. And I'd want you to take my pic on it! smile
Dotun Ayodeji: Very creative I know. Thanks Ginnie.
