Chair for solitude

I had three chairs in my house; one for solitude, two for friendship, three for society. Henry David Thoreau
There are several reasons I took and post this photo: the Green chair (yes Rudy :-) I notice!), the tiles (beautiful, isn't it?), the sunlight and shadow (I miss Bob's Barcelona DP), the feeling of solitude (because somebody said "one is inspired only in solitude" and I need some inspiration), and lastly, it's not a bad shot, isn't it? :-) I have made good progress with the assignment...So how's your day/yesterday?
p.s. this shot was taken at the same building a few months ago.

So true: "one is inspired only in solitude"...I think, most of the time. Right now I am inspired to look for my camera manual and read up on shutter speeds, aperture setting, and what not. I have an important assignment of my own...winter is coming. I like that cool green chair amongst the warm, busy background of tiles and shadows.

w, you have a photographic assignment? I wonder what would that be...anywaz, mmm...has it snowed yet? wink wink :-)

Again another good angle. The strong light and shadows make a powerful shot, plus the abstract message that gives the broken chair. Yes, now that you mention it, reminds Bob in a way. Those tiles are lovely background for the green chair.

The floor pattern is intriguing. Solitude is great, but I also like socializing. Keeps us human. But, I guess both do that for us, right?

Beautiful shot. You have a great way of using the colors that you find to frame the way we look at the view.

Looks like a good place to study! I love the tile work.

Wonderful photo! Barcelona [Bob] as an inspiration is a grand idea ... The chair in the photo brings back memories of school for me are more about groups than solitude.

oh, love it! for the reasons you mentioned (does remind me of bob).
Its a pity, the tiles are no longer popular these days.

Meg, yes m'am I'm working hard...and yes it is very English because it was built by the British!

John, I would really like to be a regular visitor to your blog with RSS ;p

Jazzy, I have already done that a few months ago, just legs in the photo, lol

Denton, you know what, I was really wondering because the wooden part is too small for me...

You are all very kind, I guess light and shadow are always best partners in making things more dramatic
