benchi.jpgJust in case you’re wondering, yes, I had a little time on my hands while in Claremont recently. It’s a cute little college town with a lot of character and so I had every intention of incorporating a photo safari into my visit but, Southern California traffic being what it is, I got there just as the light was fading. I’ll admit I was feeling pretty disappointed by the time this luminous bus-stop bench finally caught my eye. Pretty!
