[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Wandering around some local gardens on a special open day, when money was being raised for charity,I saw this interesting chair, situated in the garden of a friend.

It has obviously been there for some time, as lichen has grown all over it.No use trying to sit on this chair!

The lichen is a sign that the air is clean and pure,as it will not grow where there is pollution.

Hope that you like it, and thanks for looking.

Hi Jean,
A very textured old garden armchair with such details!
Good light management and a nice contrasty image with the foliage around. I like the POV and the square format.
Well done for this neat work.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

What I like especially is the slightly elevated point of view giving the distinct impression that there is a person missing from the chair who should be there...

Nice shot. Good pov, nice lighting and color and a good composition. I never knew that about lichen. I remember seeing it everywhere in Alaska. They must be doing something right. :-) TFS, Lori
