Stripes - Table/Chair Series


Sometimes I stumble on the best photo ops when I least expect it.  I went to Wine and Whiners, a really fun group as you've probably  guessed,  last Wednesday afternoon ( after 5 of course!!).  I had never been to Beth's home before and wasn't prepared for all of the great photographs that awaited me.  I took one look around and high tailed it to the car for my trusty camera.  Here's but one example.  I had a little post processing fun with this one so I'm including another photo so you can see how pretty this table and chairs looks tucked away in her backyard.

Lovely colors! And this backyard doesn't seem too bad either...!
Your surprise this night, opening my collage, made me laugh this morning ;-)

ciao, Luis

valeria said...

I love the first one, Virginia! And brava to your friend Beth, she chose lovely colours for her garden!

Peter said...

Good job! Of course, already the "original" has a lot of charm!

Julie said...

I totally missed this image in my list: it is not exactly a "typical" VJ ... whatever that may be. And this I guess is good ... always keep the crowd guessing rather than letting them expect more of the same.

There is a transition going on under the surface here, VJ. Goodo ...

I do love the name of that group.

One of our CDPB (Selim) needs support, VJ ...

Bibi said...

Hi, Virginia! Am currently a victim (since last Thursday...) of internet havoc, so I haven't been checking blogs! Been using scheduled posting from friends' places.

I like the first photo, the angle, the lines....

Juergen Kuehn said...

Again a photo (first one) according to my taste, Virginia.
The colors I can very well imagine a well framed poster oft it.

Virginia said...

Julie,
I cannot translate Selim's post! Can you enlighten me? Personal or is it the government again? I'll ask Diederick.

Artistic, both the photo and the setting.

Halcyon said...

I love the first one. I thought it was a bench or something at first.

You really do "find" the best photos.

Virginia said...

Halcyon,
This daily THING, has turned me into a photo hound!

Julie,
Yep, I"m itching to step out of my box and experiment a little. Some of it might work, some probably won't have mass appeal. I"ve got a few more tucked away for another day. I can't leave anything the way it is for very long. Hang on to your seat!

Juergen,
A poster? hmmmmmm. That could be fun!

Alice,
YOU are the one that stepped out of your box on your blog. My mouth is still hanging open!

Valeria,
Beth has one of the most interesting homes! I took photos inside and out! BTW, your lady on the balcony was a great shot!

Bibi,
Sorry about your internet. I freaked at the Apple Store the other day when they said I'd have to leave my Mac for 3 days. I'm leaving while I'm in France. I'm too "connected" to part with it!HA

Peter,
It reminds me of a blue table/chair I saw at Place des Vosges outside a cute little shop!

Poloroid, RR and Olivier
Thanks, glad you liked it!

marley said...

Very nice, cool contrast. It just shows always have your camera with you, something I still don't do!

Ken Mac said...

wine and whiners. Man, would I fit in there! I like that shade of blue

Laurie said...

Take a bow for this one! Love the colors and lines. (And totally want to go to Wine and Whiners!)

Alex said...

Hi Virginia, great shot, looks a nice place to chill out with a good book.

Marie-Noyale said...

A great Summer feeling!

Julie said...

The title is "Who am I?" and the image is recycled as I note. I could not get an understandable translation but it is talking about change and going away. Does Diederick know anything?

Babooshka said...

Where was my wino, I mean whiner invite? It's quite 3D. I'd advise turn the lights out and look at the screen to see the illusion of layers and curious glow. See I do take photography seriously, well sometimes. Reminds me of Burd's work, and I do miss his stuff as I know you must too.

Virginia said...

B,
What a compliment. Burd was one of my favorites. I wish I knew where he was and how he's doing. I'll wait till later and cut the lights. I'm laughing at that one. Cheap thrills? And you would make the Wine and Whiners group so much fun!!

KM and Laurie , come on. KM we need a man to spice up our group!

Marley, I'll tell you again. YOu gotta have that camera at all times!

Dusty Lens said...

Colorful lines, so bright, almost glowing. I'm sensing a splash of red from the whine wine.

Bergson said...

I like the first garphic

you would have to wait to give us the solution

Snapper said...

Love that top photo. Cheers!
