Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered…in the Vosges

At a time when weather in the northern US has been a hot topic (or a cold topic), “Weathered” is an apt theme for the Photo Challenge.  In the annoying tradition of making a word a part of speech it wasn’t meant to be, those of us in that part of the country have been getting (winter) weathered like crazy.

But my example comes from a summer day in the Vosges Forest of France, a place where you don’t expect to come across a chair of any sort while following a trail.  This chair obviously had weathered more than a few nights in the forest and come out the worse for wear, something with which we who’ve experienced many days and night of sub-zero Fahrenheit temperatures might identify!

    I was fully expecting to see a ‘distressed’ door, Janet, from your French collection. A unique take on the prompt.

  2. Oh, poor old chair! I’m guessing you didn’t rescue and take it home to be restored to its original glory. 😀

    While yours is a lovely photo for the challenge, Janet, I hope that whoever besmirched this beautiful forest by discarding their chair there gets a terrible pain in their behind right NOW!

    , I wonder “what were the better days” it has seen

  5. […] This, that and the other thing Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered…in the Vosges […]

  6. I wonder how it got there! Sending warmth from Thailand

    • I wonder the same thing. There were several other chairs there in similar shape. If it were in the US, I would think some young kids were sitting there drinking, but here, who knows? I do know that whoever brought them in should have taken them out!!


  7. I wonder why the chair landed there… where is the chairman who used it once? we visited the vosges once to show our huskies real snow… it was a fail… one refused to leave the car, the other one had a short pee break and jumped back in the car… snow much fun (not) lol

    Even more weathered than my contribution to this challenge 🙂

    Poor unloved soul. 😦 😦

    I wonder who and why it was dumped and how long it had been there. It looks very old and definitely weathered

    Lovely Janet! We are getting snow now and an arctic blast again. Brrr

  12. Ruth says:

    Oh your chair is more weathered than my example Janet. So intriguing. A real writing prompt.

    great photo for weathered – and this one makes me wonder of the history of this chair….

    • I can’t imagine dragging out here and then just leaving it. Perhaps this was a spot a few people went to what…drink, get bitten by mosquitoes, ??? At any rate, they should have taken the chairs out with them when they left, even though I would have missed this shot. 🙂


What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
