The Picnic Shelter (culturally appropriated)

Well…so…this is a real thing that I saw. It’s very near the location of the last battle of the Comanche tribe (which is often regarded as the end of the “Indian Wars” in the United States).

I’ll just leave it at that.

Where chairs go to die

040714

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.
