Yup. You ARE addicted.
Well now I do. aidan
chairs and church interiors - 2 for 1. As always, lovely images.
Yes, I do, and yours are lovely as always. Merci!
I do. I missed Parisian chairs so much I had to get some for my American home. In fact, I own two that look exactly like the green ones you show in the Luxembourg Gardens (or was it the Tuileries?) Mine are poppy red, but the same company made them. ;-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)
Great series! I'm ready for some new chaises. Awesome pix. =)
great pictures! thanks for sharing! andrea
What a great subject! Chairs! You've done a great job at capturing the personalities of these iconic seats.
I don't share the fascination, but love your pictures. Was the cathedral one (in the middle of the series) taken in Rodez?
Just for comment follow-up...
Chairs are awesome! They mean relaxation to me. I especially like the green ones pictured here. I would love to have a couple of those! :)
Here in Nice, blue chairs in front of the sea are a sort of symbol of the city. They're in every postcard and photo shot on Promenade des Anglais! ;-)
Yes Have taken many chaise photosLove the one with the snow
LOL If you left out the city name we'd still know where the photos were taken. I love this post!
I love all the fussy feet lined up neatly in the second picture, and the white chairs all tipped in over the tabletop -- perhaps they're having a gossip about how strange people are. Thanks for a big smile.
Great photos!! I never thought about empty chairs as photo object, but it's true that they tell a story. I love it! And when I see these kind of chairs, I immediately think of lovely Paris :-)mlle norvegienne
Me! I share the fascination, but more with windows and doors. Have you read The Highly Sensitive Person by Elaine Aron? Apparently, highly sensitive people like these things...
What's not to like about French chairs!? THese are great photos-so typically french!Love your blog-will be following from now on
Thank you, J. Urbanski. I'll look for the book. I'm curious what it has to say about one who is drawn to empty chairs, windows, AND doors.
NathalieI fully admit that I am. :)AidanAnother convert. Yay! SamMerci!
The Solitary CookGlad to hear from another chair lover.VéroniqueThe green ones were in les Tuileries. You have them in RED? Fabulous!SandyMerci. :)
andreaI'm not sure I ever knew your name before now. :)Thanks for stopping by!CowgirlMerci! They make a wonderful subject. Especially in Paris.BettyYes, that one was in Rodez. I wondered if you would recognize it!
maryI really love those as well. Would like a couple for our garden.CappuccinoThose chairs in Nice are iconic...I remember them well. MaryThanks! The snow photo was our neighbor's garden in a freak snowstorm in March.
MaureenVery true! Parisian chairs are easy to spot...though not all of the photos were taken in Paris! :)EmmI love that the chairs tipped against the table have a "personality." Nice to see that others caught that as well. Mlle NorvegienneThey can definitely tell as story! Maybe you'll notice them more when you're out and about now? :)
JN UrbanskiThanks for the recommendation, I haven't read it but will have a look at it now. So glad you stopped by to comment!CraigBienvenue! Thanks for stopping by and commenting.The Solitary CookHuge thanks to JN! I'm curious too!
I'll second J.N. Urbanski's rec for the Aron book "The Highly Sensitive Person." It was probably written for people like all of us. ;-)
I had to laugh... I thought I was the only one who had a chair fetish! On one of my websites I have a series of photos that I call, "Life is Simple"... chairs mostly - lol!Taken in France, by the way! Love it!
A chair, empty, speaks not of the present, but of the past which may go back many years, and too of the future that may arrive at any moment or perhaps much longer. The empty chair is part of a stage set. The play may be over or may yet begin. But right now, at this moment, the chair is in between. The chair recalls and anticipates, but during this reverie it is still and quiet. All of this commands the camera to come out and capture the stage as an image. The image then hops the express and pops up in many places to greet many faces. Behind those faces more reveries take place. It is a bit of magic what you are doing. And why not? You are living a little magic every day and are generous enough to share it with everyone.Merci!- Bradford
I LOVE the chairs in Paris... all of them! The green chairs are in abundance in Tuilleries and Palais Royal and Luxembourg and.... I would love to find a pair (in rouge or vert) in the USABest to you with your move!BisesGenie
AnonI'm going to order it as soon as I can. It looks very interesting!LaurenNo, you're not the only one! :)BradfordThank you for your lovely comment. I'm happy to share and always appreciate hearing that my readers enjoy my images, thoughts, etc.GenieI love those Tuileries garden (and Luxembourg garden) chairs too! You should contact Véronique and see where she bought her chairs.
