Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken

I shot this back in the spring.  We spent a week with friends in Pennsylvania, and this was sitting in the back corner of the back yard.  I used a photo of this same chair for the weekly photo challenge “worn.”  This is just a different angle.  I don’t know why or how long this chair has been sitting in their yard but it makes for wonderful photography.  Maybe I’ll have more posts through the week. We’ll see.  Have a great weekend!

  1. The chair reminded me of my grandma who would sit in this old rocking chair every day. It got worn out when she died but my mom had it restored and is a part of our living room now. Sweet memories.

  2. Great snap Cecelia! Wonderful subject for “broken”. I have a picnic table to go with it, I won’t let CH, my husband, break it down. I can’t part with it. It may show up for my weekly Photo Challenge!

    1. Hahaha. . . Do you know how to photoshop? Maybe we could make the table and chair “set!” Sometimes these broken things have so much beauty. I hope to see your table sometime this week. 🙂

  3. I am passionate about primitive antiques…mostly painted pieces. My home is filled to overflowing with items such as you have photographed, but in useable shape. However, in my garden are items that didn’t fit inside my house…and so have lovingly been left in the garden…to make themselves to home. One…once a beautiful, teal colored wheel barrow which sat near someone’s pool filled with flower pots…in New Hampshire…is now returning to the earth under the shade of a star magnolia tree in my front yard. There are also benches here and there, children’s wagons, an old iron bed head board serving as a trellis for a clematis vine, bird baths, huge iron urns, carved flower pots lying on their sides, and a wonderful, blue wagon that had once hauled hay on a farm. Wish I had a home that could store all of my treasures…but my garden is an extension of my life…and so I’m at peace with leaving my primitives in the care of Mother Nature. 🙂

    1. Oooooh, your yard sounds so interesting! Bet there are a lot of photo ops. I know what you mean about collecting primitive antiques/art. It is certainly addicting. Having lived in New Hampshire years ago, that is a place one can find such things in abundance! At any rate, glad you stopped by and that you appreciate that wonderful, broken down chair! Have a wonderful day! 🙂

    1. Thanks SIG. I hope my friends just leave it sitting there and let nature reclaim it. Would love to go back next spring and see how it’s “weathering” (pun intented!) Thanks, as always, for stopping by.

    1. Thanks for stopping by. I don’t really have memories about the chair (it was never my chair), but I do think it is lovely to photograph as it is being reclaimed by nature! I’m glod you like it. I do too. I visited your blog, too. Very nice. Please come back and visit more often.

    1. Don’t feel bad…since I’m back in school, and especially with the upcoming move to OH, I don’t think I will ever get “caught up” with the emails. At some point I’ll just have to scrap them all and start afresh. Oy… what a pity. Such good reading and so little time. At any rate, thanks for stopping by. Glad you made it. Hope to see you next week! 🙂
