A five-member herd


I drive this highway every day on my way to work. It’s not a very exciting trip, most of the time – just 30 miles or so of mostly straight 4-lane highway. Sure, it curves a couple of times, and the speed limit drops through the little town of Smyer.

A few months ago I started to notice the chairs outside the fence of a junkyard that’s along the way. Sometimes there are two or three, other times there are as many as five. Sometimes they face each other, sometimes the highway, and sometimes one or two of them are on their side. I always look when I go by; it gives me something to do.

Toward the end of last week, I noticed the chair census had grown from two all the way to five. So on Saturday morning, I took a drive out that way to make a portrait of the herd of chairs.

  2. Well done portrait…of a strange setup.


  3. These kinds of chairs have always been interesting to me – they look like someone has put wheels on a starfish, and stuck a shaft up to hold the chair. Maybe its the starfish on the run. They move slowly, so they have not got very far from the store yet.
