Gimme Five + Five by David McMahon

Currently unavailable for purchase

These unique seats were right outside an ice cream parlour in Long Island, New York.

My challenge here was to use the vivid colours of the two “hand” seats, while including the baseball mitt-shaped seat, as well as the strong patterns of the more traditional black metal table and chairs.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. This was shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F6.7, 1/125 sec, ISO 200, focal length 34mm.

    So good that one chair is a left hand and one is a right. Cool shot!

  • I’m very observant, Betty, but I have to admit I hadn’t actually noticed that until you pointed it out!
