Round Australia Road Trip #27

Jude’s Bench Series – The Road Trip Collection

This year Jude, writer and photographer at Travel Words, set a challenge to photograph benches, with a different theme each month. While I enjoyed seeing the beautiful benches that appeared on participating blogs, I didn’t ever post any photos myself. When we set off on our road trip I started taking bench photos, especially with Jude in mind. The result is a year’s worth of bench challenge photos – The Road Trip Collection.
