Blue Chairs



I love photographing chairs.
Blue chairs are my favorite.
Yes, kind of weird; but it is what I like.
Here are two chair I encountered this past week.
The one at the top was a surprise; tucked away between two buildings,
yet sitting there so pretty.
The second chair I drive by all the time and just love seeing it there.
It makes my heart sing each time I see it.
Saturday I happened to have my camera in the car
and the sun was shining on that blue chair just right.
I turned around and went back to capture that blue chair in
my cameras eye.  Oh, I am so glad I did.

I don't know who owns those blue chairs,
but they brought me JOY this past week just to see them sitting there.
What brought you JOY this past week?

Oh, I understand why you love photographing chairs! I adore chairs. I used to collect miniature chairs for this very reason. And blue chairs--oh, yes! They are some of the happiest. I so get it.

Thanks for sharing a little of your joy today, Marilyn. As for me, a big bunch of cosmos I bought at the farmers' market this morning is making me very happy right now. :) xoxo

I always enjoy your photos of favorite colored things. Indeed, I wrote a blog post today that was inspired by your lemon-yellow teacup from last week. :)

I've always loved painted chairs, and for years I had two retro "tulip" metal lawn chairs that I'd painted bright blue and yellow. I kept them until they were too rusted to be safely sat upon. I really miss those chairs!

My husband, actually, although I think it embarrassed him that I used that word to describe what he brings to my life! (But he does!) Love those blue chairs ... and that you actually paused to photograph them. Terrific!

I love blue chairs....photographing chairs in general has become a bit of a thing with me lately.
I popped over from soul aperture.

Isn't it amazing, Marilyn, what tugs at our hearts. Your blue chairs are a treasure. I love spring and summer when I can enjoy the almost daily experience of driving past a beloved red house filled with sunflowers of all sizes.
