I had wondered what I was going to put up today as when I left for work this morning I didn't really have anything I was particularly happy with, and as I didn't leave work until after 8pm this evening it was beginning to look as though I'd have to trawl through my "I'll only put this up if I really have to" folder. But, all that said, I decided to drive along the sea-front on my way home and ended up with this shot.

The interesting thing is that I don't think I would have thought of it if I'd had my tripod with me; i.e. I might have taken a picture of the bench, but I don't think I would have rested the camera on the bench. I guess, in this instance, that I'm glad I wasn't better prepared :-)

Oh, and I should add that the only post-processing was a Curves adjustment to up the contrast a little.
