These two chairs remind me of a series of photos taken by Joel Meyerowitz, photographer extraordinaire and creator of Cape Light. Sometimes he would shoot a similar scene, similar angle at different times of the day.  The photo of two chairs would have been an interesting study.  It's amazing that Joel's photos did not age at all.  Take a look and tell me what you think.

Maybe you owned Cape Light.  I did.  I also gave it as presents to friends as a great introduction to the wonderful place my parents lived, where I was lucky enough to vacation in summer.


It was interesting to me that Slate placed the cocktail party photo at the top of its article.  It does have a timeless quality.  The guests look as if they might have been at the neighbor’s barbecue last year, or five years ago.  Not 30!
