Artist's Description

Bench in the early morning fog taken just outside a senior’s residence in Deux-Montagnes, Quebec on Friday October 24/08. This bench faces the Lake of Two Mountains and under normal circumstances would afford a great view of the lake.

I am really honoured that Alyssa (adgray) upon viewing this image wrote a lovely poem that is a perfect match to the emotion I wanted to convey with this work.
Here it is:

WAITING OUT TIME
“There’s always someone sitting here
every day for the last sixty years
They shuffle up and rest their bones
and wait a while before going home

They take their turn to enjoy their repose
sometimes sharing sometimes alone
They might overlap with the newer ones
vacating their place as their time comes

Who were these dwellers of this bench
why is it’s usage so entrenched
They come to wait ‘til their time is done
ironic though as time waits for no one"
