Creating Beauty in the Mundane: Great Photos of Park Benches

Last Updated on by

While Jim Richardson famously said, “If you want to be a better photographer, stand in front of more interesting stuff,” it's also true that a good photographer can make beautiful images out of mundane subjects. Nothing shows that better than these photographs of park benches. There is beauty in everything if you know how to draw it out.
