    This is one of the vistas near Oswald State park and what Id like to know is
    whether the scene looks better with or without someone sitting on the bench?

    I could live with it either way but tell me what you think? Thanks!

  2. Beautiful as is but then a single person on the bench would add a whole new dimension to it. Lonliness, quiet contemplation, someone to appreciate the beauty, etc.
  3. Pete! That's not right. I was expecting to see a photo of Jack Ruby..........OOPS! I just dated myself,,,,,,,,,,uuuuh I was only 11 yo then.
    Anyway, I like it without. Nice shot BTW, what a beautiful view.

    Beautiful, but....

    That is a lovely picture but I think a single person sitting in the correct posture would add to the message.

    Your title made me look. Guess I'm dating myself, too. :O I like it just like you've got it.
  10. I was actually reluctant to look at this thread because I thought it might have something to do with Kennedy's assasination. I was pleasantly surprised. Nice photograph.

    Ooh! Nice Pic - I want to be there!

    Yeah, but who?



    Strange how an event over 40 years ago has affected us so, that the mere name of a participant, even in a different context, brings it all back.
  12. I like the picture w/o anyone on the bench! It makes ME want to be the one on the bench. Great shot . . . .

    Miriam and Muril,thanks for your comments ! Funny how a title brings it all back.I had just got a transitor radio[rolf,remember those] for my birthday and really didnt understand at the time what was happening but I knew it serious stuff.
