Who's Missing?

Here's a very famous photograph of Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt...

On Guard Benches

I love how these two benches look as if they're guarding this amazingly plump looking tree - I can't stop thinking about how it looks just like a woman getting changed into a bathing suit while family look on!

Lovely bench...

Possibly the most perfect one to start the new year with. A happy 2012 to you all.
