It’s August. “Global Weirding” is taking hold across the globe – some people are baking, some freezing, others soaking.
Here on the West Coast of the US, it’s been cooler than usual, but still sunny. Taking a stroll near the Bay one lunchtime I came across this strangely abandoned and sun-bleached chair and noticed the lonely little cloud that seemed to be the focus of it’s eyeless gaze.
The humorously anticlimactic title sprang to my mind immediately, and seems to fit the image perfectly.
The image works on many levels however. The more I look at this image, the more nuances I see. There’s an implied yearning; a wistful – or perhaps lonely – quality. The cloud may represent something unfulfilling or disappointing. The non-existent chair occupant was expecting more, waiting for something bigger – but this was it. THIS little thing!
Or maybe its just a sign there’s something bigger to come…
What do you think when you see it? Let me know.
