Easy Chair

I love photographing these kinds of details out on the streets. The details that make a city. Such things give a city a sense of character and life. This has probably been a well loved armchair, now left out on the side of the street to be collected as rubbish. Some might think it makes the street look scruffy, especially for those who live there, but for me it’s gold dust. It’s the kind of stuff that made images produced by the master photographers great; that level of ‘character’ that doesn’t really exist anymore in cities due to better economic wealth, stability, and eventual gentrification, which usually means cleaning the rubbish off the streets.

  1. Reminds of The Big Bang Theory episode where Penny finds a similar easy chair on the street and pays a homeless guy ten bucks to bring it up to her flat, only to discover there was a rat living in it! 🙂

    Oh, and a lovely shot too, M.
