Title • old chair

One of the things I’ve been doing recently is exploring the place where I work – looking at things I might not normally notice, and seeking out things and scenes that I wouldn’t come across by accident. And at the back of our building are two staircases that are very rarely used (my recent stairwell shots were taken there). At the top of one of these staircases, that gives access to an unused floor, I found this chair. It had obviously been dumped there and I suspect, as soon as it’s noticed, it will be thrown away. I particularly liked the contrast between the green of the chair and the rest of the scene, and the ways in which the various shadows overlap and merge with one another behind the chair.

As an aside; I recently decided to add the image description to the comments window (rather than linking to an alternative archive page). I assume, as nobody has mentioned this, that it works ok and isn’t a bad thing, but if you do have any thoughts on the change, please let me know.
