Sometimes when I’m out walking, I see things that make me giggle. 9 times out of 10 I just walk on by. I don’t know why it is, but I rarely stop to take a photo of what intrigues me. I think this may be because my brain expects (and probably wants) to use a camera for photos. As I don’t usually carry a camera along for walks, my brain-hole doesn’t process any other means of snapping a pic. But once in a while I remember I have a phone on me. And when I do, I click away.


Anyhoo – I spotted the above discarded chair on the side of a residential street. It was placed in the shade of a magnolia tree, and I thought that was probably nice for some passerby, what with the recent heat and all.


Lest it be too hot for a magnolia tree’s willowy shade, there was also a fan just down the road…



Unfortunately, its inner guts were missing, so I think its ability to stir and cool the air would be more figurative than literal. Of course, I did not see a very long extension cord nearby, so don’t even get me started on the whole electrification of things.


In the future, I hope to remember my phone’s camera when I’m out and about. I always carry a phone when walking or riding my bike, so it’s not as if I’m without technology. If I can just tweak my brain into accepting the phone’s camera as a real camera, I’ll be set.
