Watery Wednesday #27

Am I the only one who can't believe it's already Wednesday again? I thought this made for an interesting picture. This is one of the shots I took at Bolsa Chica. It's a wildlife preservation so how did this one plastic chair get in the water and why is it still there?

LOL! My guess? Some sort of a movable art installation!!! Just kidding. It makes for an interesting photo though.

Jan said...

Love your photo. The chair is compliments of trashy people. Birds don't need chairs.

Ewok1993 - LOL! That was my comment to someone walking by who said it was too bad the chair was in the way. I said I was kind of glad it was there for the picture.
:-D

Jan - I'm thinking the people over the conservancy must have left it there on purpose... maybe at least for now.

it's the same around here, garbage in wildlife areas.

Good photo though.

Gill - This place is actually very clean except in certain places like the channel that flows down into a neighborhood. That's why this chair surprised me. It was practically right at the entrance.

It is an interesting shot--i like the composition, it does look sad, though, doesn't it? It is nice that we are working on Spring and all the winter cleanup that entails!

Oh that's fabulous ..

Denise said...

A very interesting photo, says it all doesn't it? You have captured it very well, this incessant laziness of some in not getting rid of things the right way, maybe they were partying, no excuse. The bird doesn't seem to mind even though he doesn't realize how it is polluting his universe. The weeks do go by pretty fast. I would like to thank you for creating Watery Wednesday if I haven't said it before. I enjoy looking at all these lovely 'watery' photographs.

My daughter took a photo recently of a lounge chair at the beach. But it really made an interesing photo because it was so 'different' than what you would have expected. Same as your photo.

Tarolino said...

Interesting shot. One certainly wonders about that chair. Someone has had a temper tantrum perhaps. Still it gives nice perspektive to the size of that lovely bird.

It makes for a real photo of an artist's eye. I guess that critter is using it that's why it's not been removed yet. :)

Carletta said...

I know you walked a long way to get some of your photos. Maybe someone else took a chair to enjoy the sights and then was too lazy to carry it back.
The chair makes for an interesting reflection.

Oops, I forgot to add my post is on my photoblog.

Will said...

Neat photo. I like the reflection and the bird.

ROSIDAH said...

This is a great shot! The chair gives this photo even a deeper meaning, though it really shouldn't be there. I'm kind of perplexed how people like to throw some weirdest things on mother earth. It's so amusing to read the comments. I couldn't help myself and smile. Wish I were that funny :).

The Right Blue said...

Quite a bit of crud on the chair around the 'waterline' -- looks like it's been there awhile. The bird doesn't seem to give a hoot.

Connie said...

The water is pretty shallow there. Too bad they leave chairs in the water.

magiceye said...

the chairperson overthrown!
mayday mayday

Bryan said...

It looks like the chair has become a bit of a micro habitat.

Perhaps the chair was enjoying a stroll along the waterfront and caught a glimpse of its own reflection. Chair was stunned to see this odd, green, four-legged beast staring back, just staring, so he crept closer and closer and closer. Needless to say, this ended tragically as chairs generally cannot swim.

Dirk said...

Great picture,allthough it's a pitty that people left plastic chairs in a wildlife preservation.

Leora said...

Something about the upside-down chair is rather humorous. The bird doesn't seem to care.

the buddhess said...

Ha! The chair is an addition that makes it a picture perfect!

Mary said...

Funny! A strong wind, maybe? You would think someone would remove it, but it made a great shot with the bird. Kind of a statement on how we treat wildlife and their habitat.

Judy said...

i had to laugh at the comments from magic eye and brian!!!
i was going to say the chair is there so the sandpiper can sit and digest when he is done eating, but that is simply eclipsed by their comments!!

Tammie Lee said...

There is a story behind everything, not always interesting or could be fantastic... Interesting shot, especially with that cool bird there!

Thank you for hosting this wonderful watery sharing!

Amanda said...

This is a great shot would have been perfect for Wordless Wednesday as well.

The Birdlady said...

Well, that's nuts! Pretty blue water, though.

storyteller's other blog said...

Good question! Of course I have no clue ... and it DOES make for an interesting shot ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

sunnymama said...

Yes this is an interesting photo for watery wednesday! Great picture!

Lilli & Nevada said...

That is interesting, did the wind blow it or did someone decide to pollute?
Thanks for having me on your watery Wednesday meme

Allison said...

Great photo! The bird looks like it's enjoying itself =)

june said...

Why people leave their "trash" behind is beyond me! Doesn't seem to bother the little bird though :-)

Minie said...

Amazing view!

mimi said...

nice view! Thanks for commenting my blog.

floreta said...

what an interesting "found" object! love the reflections in the water.

Arlene said...

Interesting capture. I too wonder who put that there and why still there. I hope that is not used to hit some birds or i hope the person who sat on that did not fall on the water. But i guess no worry because it looks shallow.

I just posted mine, Sweet! :)

Oh, this one puts a smile on my face. The originality of it, I guess. I love the reflection and the ripples in the water. :D

ViennaDaily said...

Yes, odd and curious shot but fun and lovely as well...the bird doesn't want to be wet sometimes so he would step up there you know! lol. ;D

John Theberge said...

I'm looking forward to when we start having open water around here. I'm getting tired of these icy conditions.

napaboaniya said...

Now! That's some unique and interesting shot! :)
Who said furniture had to be kept on the dry ground? *heehee*

Hope your upcoming weekend will be a great one :)

Louise said...

This photo is pure artistry!

bettyl said...

Very cool subject! The bird doesn't seem to mind the chair, but still makes you wonder where it came from.

T and S said...

Well observed and shot. If that chair's not removed soon, it will become a favorite perch for the water birds especially cormorants and kingfishers.
