“The 3 Chairs”

“The 3 Chairs”
I have been asked recently 2 questions often, what are “The 3 Chairs” and “are they still there”? They are still there, I just haven’t been diligent on photographing them enough. As to “what” are they, well, they started about 15 years ago when we lived full time in Hiram. We had just purchased our home and we wanted some chairs we could leave outside in the backyard. I liked the shape of Adirondack chairs, but all that I saw were flimsy or at least looked that way. They were building lots of houses around us and I went to the builder and asked if I could collect the scrap wood left from the decks they were building. He said yes and so I was able to build 5 chairs from the wood scraps. He liked them and asked if I would build 20 for him for gifts for people. He delivered a load of wood to my house and I built the chairs plus a nice Settee for myself with the wood.
I brought 3 of the chairs up to our cabin and placed it beside a cypress chair we had as well. When we bought our current home we brought the chairs over from the cabin and put them in the backyard to enjoy our view. A bear had eaten the cypress chair beyond repair so our “4 Chairs” became “3 Chairs”. I learned the idea of odd numbers being more pleasing visually than even numbers in High School art class, so in a way the bear did us a favor. I started capturing images of the chairs and some folks enjoyed them enough that I decided to create their own Facebook page, ” The 3 Chairs”. The 3 Chairs have been a part of Bear Woods and seen all that happens here, they have welcomed friends and comforted us when we mourned our dogs passing. They give us hope of beautiful days with each sunrise and put to rest the worries of a day with each sunset. They watch the stars above pass over each night, and have evened seen a solar eclipse. They have stories to tell, and I have hoped to help them do that through my images.
