Greetings Leaguers...

If your photo isn't accepted into the Pool, it might be for a myriad of reasons.

First -- read the rules.

Second -- please read "About League..." (see below)

If you're still confused -- read this

Then -- if you feel that your submission has been slighted and your "art" has been misinterpreted, please lodge a formal complaint. The League will judge its own.

That is all.

Group Description

LEC is a home for all those pics floating around the Flickrsphere of seemingly misplaced chairs.

We are not interested in just any photo of any chairs, but ones that are Empty and/or interestingly OUT OF PLACE.


A pic of an empty chair at a cafe doesn't necessarily fit the bill, that might just be a photo of a cafe not doing good business.

Chairs that are displayed outside because they are for sale don't belong in the League, either.



Hammocks aren't chairs. We do not take benches..Nor stools..Or sofas/settees/couches Masses of empty chairs (vacant conference room/stadium/etc) don't suit this group's goal.

Drawings, paintings, or collages of empty chairs aren't what we're after, either.

It should go without saying that it shouldn't have a pillow or a blanket or a dog in it... it should be empty!

The key is the emptiness/ unhomeliness/ unheimlichkeit/ lack of belonging/ uncanniness that the chair represents.

Please read the This Chair is NOT Empty and/or it isn't Even a Chair discussion thread if you aren't sure what fits with the LEC.

Group Rules

We're picky here.

LEC is a home for all those pics floating around the Flickrsphere of seemingly misplaced chairs.

We are not interested in just any photo of any chair/stool/place to put your rear, but ones that are Empty and/or interestingly OUT OF PLACE. Vacant chairs are easy. Everyone probably has one or two right now in their house. An Empty Chair is a much more elusive beast.

If that doesn't sound like your shots,
You might want to consider one of these instead:

Empty Tables... Empty Chairs
chairs at abandonments
Empty Chairs and Benches Unlimited
Battered Old Chairs
Chairs Outside
Art Chairs/Unique Chairs
The Chairs of our Lives
Abandoned Chairs
ChAiRs _h_h__h__

Have a Seat
EmptySeats
Benches_and_Seats
VacanSeats
etc etc etc

But if you're not going to throw a fit worthy of a toddler when we delete your photos of sculptures, chair stores, furniture museums, benches, sofas, swings, stools, stadiums, corner cafes, and beach chairs, or other photos we don't feel fit the pool, then come on in.
