A walk to the post office, so why not take photos on the way!?

There's no big elaborate story or mission involved today; I had to go to the post office so I thought id walk around Sutton Bridge looking for some photo opportunities.

The camera and lens of choice today was the Olympus E-PL1 and a M42 mount Polar 28mm f2.8.
All shots taken at 160 iso and apertures ranged from and around f2.8-f4.

I noticed this lone bench in a park last week when walking to a friends house so this was a definite subject for a photo. There used to be a Youth Club building, that I attended when I was child, approx 1 foot behind this bench but this building has recently been knocked down and now grass is growing on the site. The building will be eventually forgotten which is a shame as I enjoyed visiting the youth club numerous time a week when I was a child, the last time I attended though was probably 18 years ago, so perhaps it was not as good as it once was.
Not far from the first shot's this cat caught me by surprise staring at me as I walked past, I liked the way it was hiding behind and looking at me through the broken corrugated plastic.
The beauty in decay.

Thanks for reading.
Happy New Year!!!
