Drag to set position!

Hi folks
Lots of amazing photos being posted all the time, showing fantastic creativity, imagination and sometimes a sense of humour!
Thank you so much for sharing these. There are many that I feel I would like to comment on individually but unfortunately due to time constraints don't manage to.

Group Description

'Old empty chairs are not empty in reality; memories always sit there' - Mehmet Murat ildan.

Anything that can be sat on can be submitted, whether alone or collectively.

I encourage you to look at the photostream using Flickr's slideshow function. This should give you an insight into the kind of work we are promoting here. Hopefully you will be rewarded with what I feel is a sensational collection of images, and inspired too!

Seats, benches, chairs, etc must be the primary subject-form of the image. This group is devoted to that somewhat melancholy image of something designed for the human form, but lacking it mostly.


As of January 2013, all images will be screened before they are posted. I - as the group administrator - reserve the right to make editorial decisions as I see fit.

To be included your image needs to focus on the seat and the lack of people. If it is ordinary, there needs to be a conscious effort to make it extra-ordinary: by way of imaginative composition; angle; differential focus; lighting etc. Please apply creativity as otherwise it is not likely to be included.

In·ci·den·tal (adjective). Meaning: Accompanying but not a major part of something. Is the seat incidental? If so, again it's not likely to be included!

The group aims to promote stunning images so please bear this in mind. Even if its 300 years old or has had Louis XIV's backside on it, unless it packs a visual punch it's not likely.......

As a general rule of thumb, we are not interested in holiday snaps particularly beach loungers, streetside cafes or wide angle sport stadiums.

Please do not submit more than one image of the same subject with only a slight difference - only 1 will be selected.

And one last thing. Please do not re-post. It only causes stress to all concerned.

If you've made it this far - thanks for your time!!!
