Ulverscroft Manor - April, 2013 5/7

If there’s a ‘lone seat’ about then I’m almost certainly likely to find it, and so it was at Ulverscroft. The bonus was of course the rusting garden roller, I didn’t see a cricket pitch so I guess it must be used on the lawn, if it is used at all.

I like the photo I hope the roller is not used on a cricket pitch it would leave ridge on the pitch
Brian Walbey: There is a big lawn just out of picture so I guess it might have been used on that, before it got rusty.
It certainly presents itself as a nice composition!
Brian Walbey: I couldn't avoid this one Elizabeth.
this is a great composition Brian... there aren't many things that are more photogenic than old paint and rust...
i like that old roller....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. It wouldn't have looked quite the same if both items were brand new.

That bench is in need of renovation from the look of it
Brian Walbey: A word from the expert, perhaps you should call in there one day and give them the benefit of your experience with bench renovation Chris smile

It's a prop for photographers, Brian, of course! smile
Brian Walbey: I think they both are props Ginnie, and of course I couldn't pass a lone seat could I.
Lovely composition Brian. I like the textures!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, they wouldn't have looked so good if they were brand new.

Perhaps they intend to flatten the bench, Brian...Ikea flat-pack furniture in prototype.
Brian Walbey: Surely not Ray, I suspect our good friend Chris would be swooning over that lovely old bench smile

Yes, I saw such a garden roller some times in England - and I love the bench with view as I hope.
Brian Walbey: Two lovely old items together, I couldn't avoid this shot. Do you think Mr.C.Phillips might give them some tips on bench renovation smile

I too am a fan of the lonely bench, the wonderful roller gets you extra points ;o)

PS don't let Chris anywhere near the bench!
Brian Walbey: Two great items together in one place Mike, can't go much better than that. I suggested to Chris he called in there and gave them the benefit of his experience in bench renovation smile
very nice still life would also be great in sepia
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal, I will give your idea a try in due course.
A pleasing composition, Brian smile
The lone bench is one of your 'signatures'!
Brian Walbey: Yes I couldn't pass this lone seat by Martin, the roller is a bonus.
Nice composition and feel here. I would love to have a lawn roller. I find the bumpy ride on the mower to be quite uncomfortable on my hip.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. This would be a very heavy roller to push on ones own. You must have a big lawn if you have a sit on mower.
perfect shot. would be a good spot to relax end of today
Brian Walbey: Yes I could enjoy a quiet sit in that little corner of the garden.
A nice scene of gentile neglect Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed Bill, they could do with Tiff calling in to give them the experience of his bench renovation techniques smile
The roller looks as if it hasn't been used in ages, Brian. The bench is aging nicely and has that "shabby chic" look about it.

Both make for an interesting composition as you've so expertly demonstrated here.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly I think if both items were new it wouldn't have the same sort of feeling.
Very nice, great props, would also be a nice location for a period shoot.
Brian Walbey: Yes these two work well together, I can imagine a period shoot quite easily in this setting.
It looks as though it's more of a garden feature than a piece of useful machinery now. But it does remind you of a cricket pitch and with that the sense of relaxing afternoons watching a good match. A lovely shot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes very much a cricket pitch sort of feeling, although I think it is a while since that roller turned in anger.

Great series so far. Everything is so green. And this is a wonderful composition.
Love it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, this year we are well ahead of this situation with nature.

A nice study, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elisabeth.
Stopped rolling just in time by the look of it. Fine composition and subjects, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Graeme, or there would have been one severely dented seat.
I love this make up Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ronke.
The rust is a nice pop within all the shades of green.
Brian Walbey: It certainly isn't used much I would think.

That;s some mighty roller. My dad used to have a smaller version of this. I should that seat would not stop it should the roller run away on a slope.
Brian Walbey: I wouldn't want to have to push/pull this roller about, that seat wouldn't stand a chance would it.
