Sunned limestone couch, one hot seat.

by Dreamerlady99 on July 27, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

On a recent trip to Columbus, Ohio, a friend and I went to the Short North. Because she was in search of this concrete couch she saw on her last trip there. So we find it, and to my surprise it wasn't a bench with arms, but a realistic looking couch of concrete, which I later learned through online searching was limestone. We decide to take our pictures sitting on it. Unfortunately it was a hot July day and had we sat on it long we may have had baked "buns".
