The subject of last week’s challenge was chairs. As with every week, how you interpret the challeng is up to you, from a classic chair, to a closeup of the curves or whatever else strikes your fancy.
I was lucky to be driveway surfing with friends in southern Virginia. They have a rolling hillside with an amazing view from the top.
Walk down the hill and past the first, smaller, pond and two chairs perfect for relaxing await, with a view of the second, larger pond.
I honestly thought this two-chair image was going to be my submission for the week’s challenge. And then Friday evening came, and the loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg hit me hard and deep. Sunday morning I went back to the photos and decided a more somber version of the single chair summarized how I felt: an empty chair, looking out beyond the immediate to the future none of us can see clearly.
Some weeks, the photo challenge appeals to my technical skills. Sometimes, it appeals to my heart. This one was one those latter weeks.
To end on an upbeat note, my friend Lee took this photo of me in a chair in downtown Floyd. It was a pretty comfortable chair 🙂
My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant be your own person, be independent.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
