XingfuMama’s ‘Pull Up A Seat Challenge’ is now into its 40th week and seems to be gaining in popularity.
This week, I dug up some photos from my travels, the first of which was taken in Puerto Montt, Chile. This larger than life statue is set on the boardwalk of a beautiful bay. I guess it’s supposed to be a loving couple looking out to sea, but somehow it misses its mark as they both look really miserable.
Along the highway in Ambato, Ecuador, a stark-naked young lady was perched on what looked like a very uncomfortable seat, holding out flowers to the passing throng. She must have been about thirty feet high, so very hard to miss.
Costa Rica can get very colourful and here, the local police seemed to be taking it easy even though they weren’t actually sitting on the bench.
Also in Costa Rica was this beautifully decorated church with the seemingly obligatory hard wooden pews. I often wondered when I was a child, whether having such uncomfortable seating was some sort of penance for our sins.
Now here at the Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga, is a much more comfortable place to sit and meditate and it certainly has a view to die for.
I hope you’re all having a great week. Now that it’s autumn here in Florida I keep waiting for the weather to cool down, but it seems to be be taking its time about it.

Mooi opbeurend met al die kleurtjes

Beautiful photos of your trip, Sylvia. Thanks for sharing! It does seem very colorful there, on many levels.
Thanks, Lavinia. So glad you enjoyed my photos. 😃
These are all terrific photographs, Sylvia. I agree with you on the 1st pic. They do have an odd look on their face. It did make me laugh. Perhaps, the artist intended the viewer to have a chuckle. Nice selections …
Thanks so much, Issy, I’m glad this made you chuckle. 🙂
Thanks, Chris. 🙂
So beautiful and real art. Thank you.
Have a wonderful day!
Thank you so much for your comment. 🙂
Great travel photos again Sylvia, I must admit the couple in the statue at Puerto Montt in Chile do look a bit sad about something! The church in Costa Rica is stunningly beautiful with all the colours, perhaps that takes your mind off the hard benches. Of course, what more can you say about Oyster Box Hotel views, just lovely!
Thanks for your nice comment, Gerrie. I must admit that i do miss having the Oyster Box just down the road. 🙂
I agree it was a lovely place to take my aunt..
You shared some great shots this week, Sylvia. That couple looks like they have nothing left to smile about.
And OUCH. The seat under that naked gal looks uncomfortable.
I believe that pews are uncomfortable so we don’t snooze during sermons.
Thanks, Nancy. Your last sentence made me smile, remembering how I almost dozed off in the sermon, whilst sitting in a front pew. I was jolted back to consciousness when the preacher loudly announced the last hymn, which I was playing the piano for. Luckily, I’d opened the hymn book at the right page before leaving my perch, which saved the day and no-one was the wiser. I was a bit hot under the collar though. 😀
That couple looks like they are about to break up. Best seat is the one with the ocean view. 🙂
I agree with you on both counts, Lynette. 🙂
I’d definitely go for that hotel view any day!
Thanks, Carol. It’s really gorgeous there. 🙂
Wonderful colr and I love art, all art, for the sake of art…but those first two…lol
Interesting and nice places or items you captured. I just like the larger than life couple 🙂
Thanks, YC. 😃
That church is beautiful and that last bunch of seats look really great.
wow what wonderful seats!
Thanks, Lisa. 😃
The couple certainly looks miserable, and that surface on the bare bottom most uncomfortable!
I bet it made you smile though. 😅
Awesome variety, yes what a variety!! 😉
Thanks, Donna. 😘
I love all of those! The statues are both amusing in their own ways, and the church is stunning.
I like your explanatory and analytical observations as well as the pictures. The giantess seems afflicted with cellulite
Thanks, Derrick. Maybe the cellulite comes from inactivity. Maybe she should go for a run occasionally. 😅
🙂 From the look of her she’s already got Jogger’s nipple
great selections, Sylvia! the first was such a sad couple but i love the church and the ocean view from the pool 🙂 🙂
Thanks, Lola. Yes, I think that couple need to cheer up a bit. 😃
Beautiful photos, Sylvia!
Thanks so much, Jill.
A nice variety Sylvia! The first two look so miserable!
Thanks, Aletta. Maybe he just broke up with her. 😳
Mmm, maybe 😔
