Readers living on the East coast of the USA may be puzzled by the lack of snow in this photograph. However I should remind the students among you that "spring break" is right around the corner, daylight savings time starts this weekend and the "Spring Equinox" (technically the first day of spring) is just a few days away, on March 20th.
What does all this have to do with my featured image for March? ...Nothing at all!
There's something apparently ineffectual, but yet brilliant about using an electrical cord to secure your street furniture. Sure, someone could easily just cut it and steal your plastic chair or wobbly table, but ...what if the cord was plugged in? Would they risk it if they weren't sure? I'm also very taken with the mirrored red and green chairs ...and the whole not-quite-straight-ness of everything.
To me this picture combines graphic simplicity with a little mystery and the hint of a story (Who did this? Was someone taking his or her chairs? Who was that, and why? ). Having participated in SPARK a few times, I think I can feel a short story coming on!
