    and another beautiful photo, Donald. I wonder, though, why is the distance between the chairs so large?

    Thank you.

    The chairs look out on this view.

    The are spread out along the parkland area. The pathway at the end of the row of chairs leads into a very beautiful garden in which the Azaleas and Rhodedendrons were in full bloom and looking spectacular. I took quite a few photographs to be made into colour pictures and will post some over the next few days.

    I can't quite understand why there's no-one sitting on them

    Or did you get them all to move?!!

    No, it was 6:15am. I was the only person up and about.

    It would be a very lonely looking photo if only one person were sitting there. With two you would start to get a story, why are they not talking or why are they talking.

    Now you've started me thinking. I wonder how it would work if I had my partner and the friend we were with, in the same pose on the 1st and 3rd from the bottom, or 2nd and 3rd? Mmm! But now I've got to wait until July 2012, when we return to that place, to try it again.

    Given my level of fitness, I'd need a camera with a self-timer of several minutes to get to the furthest away bench in time!

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Re: Sit

    An interesting find, Donald. The meadows are already tall, I bet this spot is also nice to capture in the fall. I don't know why but I just had the vision of the Beatles sitting in each one of them showing their character and just being playful. Hahaha!

    First thing I thought of, is to grab my book and read, read, read on that chair, looks very peaceful.

    It might be possible to re-create it prior to 2012, although the sentiment may be different, but at least you would get a feel of how it would play out.
