Park benches and stump under live oaks.

a nice composition! My friend, who also lives near me, in Tallahassee, florida, took this shot.

there is a feeling of mystery here! the bench. the steps. the tree stump. I sense a alter for some Ritual of Wicca, or of the like. The ladies society held a maypole ritual here, for almost 100 years!
this ladies society held a may first dance around this tree *as* a maypole.
It ceased in about 1978, as the Tallahassee springtime festival, 100 feet away, took its place and this new festival has 60,000 people in it!

One would not know that this place is downtown, in a city of 300,000!
