So now are you going to tell us what it is, and how it came to be that? :) I learn best in words, even though I create in pictures.

I see it as a focal point amongst a splendidly chosen array of lines, angles, light, curves and tones, all of which embrace this common object and force our eyes to it. Then we can try to guess who it belongs to. Or we can take a seat in the scene.

It's very well done, but the finding of it is what amazes me.

The first thing that came to mind, even before I opened the post, was Edgar Allan Poe's riddle, "why is a raven like a writing desk?"

"When is a chair not a chair?"

On seeing the image I am first taken by the tranquil nature of the scene. Instantly familiar and classical in nature, as most of your images tend to be, this particular image also contains that tension of movement caught in a single frame caused by the view of the water through the window.

So, the answer to the riddle, "when is a chair not a chair?" is simple. When it's a selfie... :lol:

For me the lst thing that caught my eye was the light hitting the chair, then the placement of it with the surrounding elements and the shadows. Straight lines, curved lines, diagonal lines, everything in the frame
keeping ones attention.

Wonderful trio, showcase for the "artist's eye" finding the design, the line, the light/shadow.
