Bench at Emerson Point

Last week I posted a picture of a bench in British Columbia. This one is a good deal closer to home. It's the bench at Emerson Point in Palmetto Florida. It sits at the very end of a peninsula facing west across the Gulf of Mexico. It's perhaps one of the best places to watch the sunset.

Typically when I arrive at this time, the bench is already taken. But it rained earlier, and so there were only a handful of people. I've never sat in it myself; I'm usually too busy taking pictures.

Benches make excellent subjects for photos. They draw our eyes in, then to the direction they point. At least that's my theory. Nevertheless, this one is in an excellent location, and if you are in the area, it's not too shabby of a spot to watch the day end.
