Cape Canaveral lifeguard chair by 

Canon Rebel XTi EOS

The birds were trying to “upstage” the chair that I wanted to shoot!! An empty chair for sure!!!! Shot in Cape Canaveral, FL


ocean, beach, sand, chair, lifeguard

The art of collecting the interesting and intriguing things of this world and bringing excitement of the possibility of “freezing” that moment in time are the reasons that my eyes have broadened to look under and over and in between the winds of the nights and the lights of the days…… Come walk beside me and we can be the “sunshine” for this season in time……….. just walk beside me…………..

    Thank you for your comment….. And that’s funny…..“and the lifeguards are on their post”….. should the chair be considered a “roost” then????

  • Thank you Astrid!!!! What is it about this empty chair??? Or is it the birds that caught your eye….. The wind was blowing hard that day and they couldn’t help but “stand against” the wind.

    I guess the birds took over the beach. They took out the lifeguard(s) first to make sure no one stands in their way. hahahaha. By the way, the chair looks like some part of a catapult or something. Nice shot! :)

  • haha thank you Raphael !!!! while wintering there I never saw anyone actually sitting in it….. maybe I was there at the right time of day?!?!
    Glad you like it!!!!
