You keep this up, I'm going to make you watch my cute little
granddaughter for 4 hours! (She's at least twice as fast as the
Energizer Bunny and she packs quite a punch too.)

This isn't directly responsive, but that chair reminds me of
the "broken chair" sculpture in Geneva, erected to symbolize the
disabling injuries caused by land mines.  It's dramatically
positioned near the Palais des Nations, the European UN headquarters:

Mapei, very effective art work in the chair, and your pictures
express it very well indeed. Thanks.

Frank offered the link, Dan. But those aren't his pictures.

And these aren't mine:

Scott: Your picture reminded me of some web browsing I did a while back, after seeing a big roadside chair. The link above is the "Who's got the largest chair" page at roadsideamerica.com

(Some friends and I are in the early phases of planning a two week Roadside Attractions tour of a few midwestern states.)

The chair is on a major road in Hagerstown. I kept driving by it and
thinking, " I need to photograph that sometime." The challenge is how to
show its size.

Road side America...

Many years ago, about 1959, I was with my sister and parents on the
only vacaction our family ever took, and we went back to Missouri,
Kansas, Oklahoma area my parents and their siblings and cousins had
fled from during the Dust Bowl disaster of the 1930's, but thats
another story, and a long one too...

Anyway, we stopped to buy gas at this station in a location I can't
remember, next door to the gas station was what appeared to be a
private home, well kept,, and in the garage was what a sign claimed
to be the largest ball of string in the world. That sucker was at
least twelve feet in diameter.

Through the years I could never decide which was more eccentric, the
twelve foot diameter ball itself, or the person/persons who not only
deicided the world needed a ball of string that big, but went to
trouble, and took the time to collect materials, and then put it all
together.

Thanks Kai.

What can one say?

> What can one say?

Do you mean in this topic, or about the string ball...or both?!    :-)

--------

{Photography.40.30}: Dan Griffith {xenophon} Fri, 28 Nov 2003 11:56:10 CST (1 line)

Ok, while we're on the subject...both.

{Photography.40.31}: Kai Hagen {kai} Fri, 28 Nov 2003 12:03:35 CST (HTML)

Well...I didn't start the topic. But my interpretation is that it was intended to be a place where photos could be posted without any follow up comments about the photo itself (other than, I guess, saying that you like it or somesuch).

As for the ball of string: What can you say?! :-)

--------

{Photography.40.32}: Scott Butki {scoop} Fri, 28 Nov 2003 14:30:15 CST (2 lines)

you can remark on the photo or compliment it. just dont criticize it.
think of it as a no-fire zone.
