Greenwich: Books About Town

Earlier this week, we went into Greenwich to seek out book benches…Books About Town is a set of four trails in London that feature bench sculptures shaped as open books. We got to see almost all of them at Greenwich…the last one was just too far for my little legs and sore feet. Enjoy the photos…I’m planning the next one to do 🙂

    Love your studies of the Benches at Greenwich.
    I have to admit I am biased as I painted one of them!
