Thematic Photographic 381 - Please Be Seated

Take a seat
London, ON
August 2016
I've written previously about studios (here, here and here), and how they can be places of quiet reverence in between the moments when they're being used to produce and/or broadcast television or radio.

When I found this simple scene of a single stool on a white paper floor/background, I knew I had this week's theme, Please Be Seated. A simple stool along the wall of a studio that was so quiet I could practically hear myself think. I walked slowly around the simple scene wondering what it was that made it so compelling. I'm guessing it's the fact that anything can happen when you sit down. And that sense of wide-open possibility seems to be at the core of every scene like this.

Your turn: Take a picture that supports this week's theme (Please Be Seated) and post it to your blog - or find one you've already posted online - and leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it. Drop by other participants to share the photographic joy. Repeat throughout the week, and don't hesitate to pull your friends in, too.

I love to spin on chairs like those. The kid in me comes out in various ways, this is one of them. :-)

Here's mine. I didn't have a stool of any kind in my files which would have been a better match, but I did find one chair that evoked a great deal of feeling from me and I think will spark the imagination of the viewer.
