Where chairs go to die


This shot required the usual two u-turns on the highway. By the time I’d realized I was seeing a building that was falling down AND was full of old chairs, we’d already driven by. U-turn #1 got us back so I could get some shots of the place.

What a sight – all those chairs getting a bit of sun on a winter afternoon.

There was also a ginger cat having a bit of a rest on one of the softer chairs. He just blinked at me, yawned, and closed his eyes. I guess photographers stop so frequently that they are of little interest to a cat who needs his rest.

Later, I leaned against the car to pull stickers out of my shoes, then with u-turn #2 safely executed, we were back on the road.

  1. You’ve managed to combine your love of chairs and graveyards in one shot! And a very nice one, too.


  2. I’m especially taken by the stripes of shadows (shadows of stripes?). I’d say the light was definitely with you.


  3. Is that diagonal holding up the building, or is it suspended by that rope from above? I don’t think I would go inside this building, especially on a windy day.


  4. Well worth the ‘U’ turn, Melinda. I don’t think I would want to fall asleep in there, especially if the wind was blowing.
