Seating for Five

When you drive past and the scene sticks in your mind –

you make a turn at the light and swing into the gas station to drive back and photograph –

Whose Chairs?

A recurring theme around the city as I travel between schools-  I see chairs.  The chairs make me wonder about the owners, their usual occupants.  Somewhere in my hard drive I’ve a photo of a high chair near the curb, waiting for pick-up.  Chairs have a personality of their own. I love to hear the names of different types of chairs, each evoke an image- wing chair, ladderback, Windsor or Eames. Lawn chair, rocking chair, lounge or arm.  High chair, club chair, captain chair, molded plastic, patio or kitchen chair.  School chairs are not particularly comfortable. Kids love the rolling ones on wheels. Folding, stackable, side chair or throne.  Where do you sit?

Everyone has a chair.
Some more comfortable than others.
What kind of chair do you prefer?
As always,

Two yellow chairs and a gray one on Evaline Street. Yellow curb peeking through the snow.

What I Found on the Sidewalk

Had just left school and was headed for tea.   Drove by.  Pulled over and got out and walked back to photograph these three chairs.

I Saw Three Chairs Just Sitting There as I Drove to Dorothy's for Tea
