Monochrome Weekend: bench, clock and reflections

Note- I just saw that this theme has a new name - The Weekend in Black and White which Dragonstar is graciously keeping going. Thank you to Dragonstar.

I didn't have time to park and compose the shot as I was running errands. This caught my eye in a shopping area and no one was behind me so I rolled down my window and took a quick snap. I think it turned out o.k. but is obviously taken on the run.

Welcome Carver!

I wish my shot-on-the-run pictures turned out this well. A fine bench and clock - and reflections in the windows too. You have a good eye.

This is a nice shot, I like the bench & clock. Very good for an on-the-go capture.

Obviously a place it would be nice to sit down and hope the large watch has stopped.

The image may have been taken on the run but the quality of the Black and White is superb. Great contrast and tonal range.

As others have said it's a good on-the-run shot and I like the bench and clock as the subjects. I also like the fact that you can see a little of the car window. It adds to the composition and the theme of on the run.

I know exactly where that is! My oldest son is a manager with Panera, and was at that location for ages before he moved out to the one on Capital Blvd. I've shot that very same clock and bench from (several) different angles. Excellent choice, and nicely executed -- drive by or no drive by!
