Folding chairs outside a café in Bath; 28 Mar 2009.

Immediately I saw these stacked chairs I thought of a group of (probably rather inebriated) people dancing a merry jig, and that impression has never gone away.  If only they could move, they’d dance off to the left as they are now, and then lurch back right again to the accompaniment of energetic music and much merriment and laughter – I’d like to be joining in with them!

The original slide has some confusing detail between each pair of struts, but I’ve darkened this to show just the detail and shapes of the  “front rank”.  The brightest dancer is somewhere around the left vertical third.

F6 with 70-300 Nikkor; Fuji Provia 400X colour slide, rated at 500 ISO; converted to mono and further manipulated in Silver Efex Pro 2 and Capture NX2.


About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.
