Mrs. Davis' Chair in a Field of Texas Blue Bonnets, is beautiful (as you can see), but the story behind the photo is so charming, I had to share it with you. I hope you enjoy this peak at Curtis Krueger's photographic art series, Mrs. Davis' Chair.
From the Etsy listing:
"Mrs. Davis was a beloved, if sometimes cantankerous neighbor of mine. One afternoon I spied her antique iron garden chair in her backyard. Something about it intrigued me. I knew I must do something special with it. The next morning I "borrowed" it and took it out to the beach, photographing it under the changing light of dawn. I titled the photo Mrs. Davis' Chair goes to the Beach.
I presented the photo to Mrs. Davis for her 98th birthday. She loved it. In return, she gave me her garden chair.
Shortly after she passed away (almost reaching the age of 102), I started to take her chair with me on my photo adventures. At first I didn't quite know what was taking place. I photographed it in the desert of New Mexico, at my friends cottage on the Eastern Shore of Virginia - then it dawned on me. I would photograph it in all 50 States.
Seven years, 40,000 miles and some 550 rolls of film were used to bring this project to completion.
I dedicate this project to the memory of Mrs. Davis and for the unexpected gift of this little rugged antique garden chair."
