A couple days ago, I was returning from a beautiful morning along the north side of the big island in Hawaii.  I drove by this setting close to the road, which didn’t appear to be part of anyone’s front yard.  I was fascinated with the shapes and textures of the tree’s root system, and it’s bleached appearance.  I started to remove the chair, but took a few images with the chair in place first.  Clearly, with that much pine straw covering the seat, as well as how deeply the feet were covered, it had been a while since this chair had seen some use.  I took a few more photos after I removed the chair, but was more intrigued with the ones including the chair.

This is my contribution to this week’s Monochrome Madness, hosted by Leanne Cole.  To see what other photographers have contributed, or instructions to join in, please visit her website.
