Colorful Chairs

Out in the back hallway at Longfellow Books at Monument Square, these stacked wooden chairs wait for their next chance to 'perform'. While taking our annual afternoon stroll to the Old Port to take in the sights and sounds of the holiday, we took refuge from the wind and cold here among the books. Most of us would be hard pressed to find a bunch of colorful chairs like these. After all, aren't we all stuck in a world of gray-metal, folding devices?

  1. Birdman, that is a bright and special photo. Good timing, when everything is whited out.

  2. Longfellow Books is a colorful place. Not surprising that their chairs follow that theme.

  4. Yes, the Midwest area is stuck in grimly grey. Rain predicted followed by freezing temperatures. When will it end?

    The thought of sitting in those colourful chairs on a sunny summer day sustains me!

  5. You are so right...a great collection of festive seating platforms! Heck, these would fit perfectly here in Ocala.

    Happy New Year!

  15. Great shot! I need to go to Portland again and explore the city a little more. I have only been there a few times and each time, it was for only a few days.

  16. I love the color combination here. I sometimes think we are becoming a world of dull plastic and metal. These are a refreshing change.
