Another one from Thailand. I spent an hour being fascinated by the light and shadows on this chair. Sad, really. I'll stop with the Thailand stuff soon I promise.

You saw all those newly created angles, and if you really did spend about an hour, they changed perceptibly. A nice study of light and also textures with the smoothness of the wood and the rough floor and wall.

How strong were the berries to have you staring at a chair for hours? Were you listening to Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show while you were contemplating? I do like the shadows and lighting. Nice photo Sir Nigel.

Very nice study of light, shadows, and angles. Very inspirational, opens my eyes to new possibilities and appreciation for subtle observation.

Great still life, Nigel. Good interplay of light and dark.

You don't have to stop the Thai pictures. As far as I'm concerned you can keep them coming.

No, don't stop - these shots are fascinating. This study of light and shadows is particularly well done. All of the lines and diagonals are fantastic. This picture rates very high on my "ENVY" chart, Nigel. Don't restrict them, keep them coming!

That's a very artistic shot, as are the other pictures of your trip. I, for one, would love to see more. The light and shadows in this picture of the chair are fascinating. I hope the Pandas don't get to it. (Probably aren't any in Thailand, anyway.)

Hi Nigel, I like the way the two triangles of shade in two of the corners are almost framing the chair, and like the light and shadows in this. Great composition too, very imaginative and creative.

Thank you for commenting on my work if I don't get round to thanking you personally.

There was a reason you were fascinated Nigel, it is because you found what you were looking visually pleasing and there has to be a reason for that and I would say it was the shapes, light and shadows, ever changing with the light. What you have captured here is simple but creative - so don't stop posting your Thai photos - keep them coming - we will let you know if we get bored! ;)

This is one of those super favorites for me! The shadows and the sunlight feeling is magical. The old cushion on the chair compared to the beautiful Bamboo wood is just awesome. This photo just calls a person in for the feelings and for wanting to sit there and enjoy whatever to look at. Wonderful!! Verena
